I recently posted how my oncologist did not answer any of my questions but simply "brushed me off"
I believe that a large portion of my prostate was removed (30 grms)by prior TURP. Therefor would this mean that the balance prostate left behind received much more radiation because there was less to radiate and would that be the reason I received only 69gy.
I also wanted to ask him about my expected disease free survival prospects. Not getting much response from him, my parting remark was "I guess I will live a couple of more years or so". And all the response I got from him was "you will live a lot longer that that".
I also wanted to ask him about my PSA results and the influence of HT but this has been kindly answered by some of you on the forum . I have learned a lot about Pca on this forum and it is very reassuring.
