We are back!! It has been a hectic 3 months but the time is near for the next PSA. The last one was 0.58 and doctor wanted to do 'a little radiation'. But after discussing our plans with the doctor, he agreed to wait and do another PSA in November. The 9th to be exact. In the meantime, we have been researching the HIFU treatment. I was under the impression that HIFU could not be done after a RP. But according to the Ablatherm website, it is an option for RP patients.
"Patients with T-1 and T-2 prostate cancer who have had a radical prostatectomy and have recurrent cancer localized to the area of the prostatic fossa can be treated for cure by Ablatherm® HIFU. In fact, Ablatherm® HIFU remains one of the only therapy options for these patients."
Is this just an ad for Ablatherm? Or has anyone had experience in such a situation.
