It has been recommended to me, that since one biopsy core has been evaluated at a Gleason 7, the other two being Gleason 6, (PSA 4.5) that a proton therapy course of treatment should be 28 treatments, rather than the normal 40 treatments, with the 28 treatments being accompanied by a higher proton radiation dose.
Does this make sense?
Has anyone else undergone this course of treatment? What has been your outcomes?
I presume that the risk of side effects rises?
Thanks for any input.
