My case I was diagnosed with Gleason score of 8.5 in Feb, 2010 and had RT and HT and I am still here and I am still on HT.
Don't give up hope.

The rates of success in radiation treatment vary. Type of radiation, protocol and patients’ diagnosis, etc., must be taken into consideration. I would recommend you to look for an example at the MSKCC ‘s Prostate Cancer Nomograms. They are easy to use and can give you a comparison between surgery and Brackytherapy (one type of radiation) based on the rates. Just log to the site and enter the info of your diagnosis.
