A personal update--I just saw my radiation oncologist, and my PSA remains less than 0.1. I completed SRT in early 2007.

Hi Wes, - That is great to hear! It looks more and more like the recurrence WAS localized. Each "undetectable" PSA (0.1 ng/ml) year improves the odds of REMAINING PCa free. Best personal regards and good wishes, my friend! - John@newPCa.org
