I would love to dialogue with someone who has a very similar experience as mine, but am unable to find a story with very close similarities. My story is under Allen Z, but to summarize:
2005 surgery and radiation; neither of which eradicated the beast
No ADT though it has often been offerd over the years
nadir from radiation 0.2 after 18 months, now at 2.5 I think but no ADT till 4.00 is what they say (so 0.2 to 2.5 in 13 years without ADT)
So my inquiry is if anyone has almost identical path--i.e, failed treatment with surgery and radiation, but 13 years out without any other treatment; just a question and I have searched the archives but did not find such a similar story..
I had 3+3 both sides with 5-20% in 4 of 10 cores, but 3+4 post surgery with "multi focal points" so not good really
