      Hey, I don't want to be a kill joy or anything, but radiation ain't a walk in the park (I'm nearly done with my course). If my PSA were 1.8 and I were 86, I'd stick with HT. You'll be on HT even if you had radiation assuming your PSA did not go to Zero. I'm on HT even with all the other stuff (radiation included) that we're throwing at the disease.

      Keep it positive and smile :)

      I had advanced prostate cancer and radiation worked for me. Since my prostate had been removed ten yr previously, doc recommended radiation. Wife's oncologist told us that he doesn't understand why urologists are reluctant to prescribe it. According to him he uses it successfully quite often. My PSA is now .02 and expected to go lower.

      I agree with mgm48. I used radiation therapy to address severe pain. It worked remarkably well. Sounds like you are responding quite well to the Hormone Therapy (HT). As you probably have gathered, Radiation is often times used in conjunction with other therapies, such as HT.
