I was diagnosed in April with PSA 9.6 and Gleason 3+4. I am 52 years old and weigh over 300 lbs. I was convinced that I would have Davinci surgery and found a Dr in Pittsburgh. He recommended that I explore IMRT since I am on the larger side for ease of surgery. After more office visits and research, I am almost sold on IMRT with seed implants. I also dread any of the side effects of surgery, so I am comfortable with radiation. Just curious if the size issue is common.
