I’m 57 years old and recently had radiation treatment for Prostate Cancer. My psa was 3.5 and Gleason count was in the middle range. I am now waiting to get results from a new psa. Is there anyone out there with a case similar to mine? If so I would love to hear what kind of results you got after radiation? I had 3d conformal radiation therapy. I know there are endless informative sites on the net but I am looking for answers from people with numbers close to mine. As well I am curious how much people have paid for treatment like mine? Thanks in advance.
Hi Mozart -
I know you asked for specifics, this being GQ and all, but I figured that the following might not be so bad - perhaps a bit of support?
My uncle was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year - the medics picked it up in a routine checkup. He is 70. He underwent a course of radiotherapy: a shot per day, for six weeks I think it was, which was quite draining.
They had to wait for the results - perhaps this is the toughest part? - but, his tests came back fine, and he’s now doing extremely well. He’s in Australia, so can’t really tell you about the cost.
Best of luck to you.
