Like a lot of guys; I'm addicted to HVAC/R and that's why I'm here now and am awsome at what I do. I'm happy I read this about you; you have helped me a LOT, and I want you to know that. Times are tough right now and I am sorry you have to go through this right now. I'll keep you in our prayers tonight. God Bless You! LOL,

    I'm sure that your brother is doing the related web research on this. One thing I found interesting in the past couple of years since a friend of mine was in treatment, is that the PSA test is not to gold standard indicator of needed surgery that they used to think it was. In fact,. one of the medical journal articles was suggesting that a lot of surgeries are not needed just because of an elevated PSA. I also read that targeted radiation therapy is often a better approach if a biopsy is positive.

    I'm sure you and your brother will seek a second opinion at least, and find the course that is most effective based on risk and outcome.

    We've both got the same family doctor, Dan and then another kick ass Urologist, and as well an oncologist that's got him on the 'female' hormones first to shrink prior to the irradiation....
    I agree the PSA is like using an odometer to measure inches...
