Just found out to that a Gleason reading on half of the gland and all 3 came in at 3 4=7 PSA is at 9.6 drs say it has to come out. I say no to many side effects. I was wondering if anybody has had luke with just the 9 weeks of external beam radiation?

I didn't like what I heard about photon radiation, so I chose proton radiation, which is more precise, and two and a half years later I've had no side effects, and like many others I'm very happy for my choice.
