I began my journey with PC being diagnosed in Feb/2008 with GL (4+5), psa 34, T3a with bulging of the left seminal vesicles observable. Radiation was completed in Aug/2008 (73.8 gy) and luprone shots completed in April, 2011. The psa slowly rose from a low of 0.21 with a DT finally reaching 6-7 months.
After CT/MR fear heme imaging, F18 Pet Bone scans, and C-11 acetate Pet Scans it was discovered the PC was still located within the left side of the prostate As well as within the seminal vesicles. If additional biopsies confirm this, I have the option of salvage focal therapy and ruling out salvage surgery. The potential benefits of cryotherapy seems to out weigh the potential side effects from surgery.
Good or bad experiences with salvage cryotherapy?
