That's a good question..I'd like to see the numbers too, because I recently had the prostatectomy myself. I wish we had a national data base regarding treatments like this..so we could all learn about the real "success" or "failures" of medical treatments based on "big" numbers. It would help me make better decisions as a medical consumer.
Not just prostrate cancer, but that's of most interest to me of course. I guess in some socialized type medical systems where the government health system provides the procedures they might have some data on this, but I guess? in our country as it is today "patient privacy concerns" and or doctors "liability concerns" and other things I suppose don't seem to make that as available as I'd like to see. Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong about this.
When I see answers to this question here..I wonder..how meaningful it is because sometimes the outspoken are either disappointed at how bad it turned out for them, or pleased that they did so well. But what about everybody else..the peeps no longer here at this site because they don't fit either group and have just moved on. What were their results?
