12/11/2012 Consulted Oncologist - Chemo and hormones before surgery clinical trial was recommended but declined to participate - quijote

Clinical Trial Associated with Adenocarcinoma, Prostate Cancer. Posted on December 14, 2012 View this journey (13 Experiences)

My doctor mentioned a clinical trial for which I could be a candidate. The clinical trial compares two groups. One group will receive chemo and hormones for a period of time then had radical prostatectomy the second group will only have the surgery.
Base on my current status and the possible side effects decided not to participate in the trial. Basically based on the Kuttan model I have a 15% change that I need further treatment after surgery vs a 50% (or unknown change-depending how they randomized) of having the chemo and the hormones.
