This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
I have also looked at RCOG and have recently received a informational pack from them. They actually do a reverse treatment from Dattoli, Brachy then IMRT. I have talked with a friend who was treated there 2 years ago. My Gleason is 3+4 PSA 5.6.
Still undecided waiting to see what insurance will cover.
Your stats are almost identical to mine. My PSA was 5.7 and Gleason 7 = 3+4. RCOG has excellent results getting insurance to pay for their treatment because of their proven results.. I had Aetna Healthcare and had less than $200 to pay out of pocket for treatment. Room and board in the Atlanta ares is, however, not cheap, unless you can get into Hop Lodge, which is FREE.,
