    Is radiation the right thing to do at this time? I am a Gleason 7. Is there a widely accepted decison point based on psa? Current psa velocity?

      These are great questions. If you would like more opinions. I would recommend you post your question using our "Ask Network" feature rather than our "Update" feature. When you post questions using our "Ask Network" feature we route it to everyone on the network who might be able to help. Whereas "Updates" are only seen by people who happen to be following you or who happen to read your profile.

      You can post questions by clicking on the "Ask Network" link on your logged in home page or the "Questions" link at the top of this page.

      Hope this helps.
