Celebrating 10 Year Anniversary

DougS Member Posts: 21

Well it has been 10 years (Feb/2008) since we got the news about PC from our general doctor.  It was dialed in at GL 9 with a PSA of 32 with MRI indications that the cancer was outside the gland.

After two rounds of radiation treatment (IMRT and PB) and a round of cryoablation treatment in between, the last PSA results indicated <0.006 ng/L.  Certainly not the outcome we were to expecting 10 years ago.  Just don't settle for what is prognosed as a certain outcome!

Just wanted to wish all readers a Merry Christmas - and let's keep up the good fight.
