    Back to the begining

    Lewvino,

    How wonderful to have you back in the forum. The last time we exchanged opinions was at the time you were starting your SRT. I am pleased to know about the results and hope the Zeros stay forever.

    I just returned from Japan where I met my surgeon of 2000, the research laboratory and their team. They informed me about the latest in PCa treatments and investigations. We are on the way for tailored therapies. Such may not be useful to survivors but to the newbies that will take the full advantage of gene-therapy. I will suggest to the many to replace the PSA with a gene test early in their life. This will soon tell the whole story even before the bandit is born.

    Best wishes for continued remission.

    VG

    Just the man

    You are just the man I need to write to. Had RP by DaVinci method also in March, 2014. Gleason of 7(4+3), involved whole left side, 3 at 100%, 2 at 90% and 1 at 30%. Did the radiation and 2 yrs. of hormone therapy. Been surviving at PSA's of <.01 for 2 yrs. testing at 6 mo. intervals, then Sept. 2017 test was at .84. Do I have a cause to be concerned or just overreacting?
