    Radiation (External radiation (Three dimensional)): Six years after Prostatectomy I was diagnosed with 2 cancer growths by a PMSA body scan at UCSF using radio tracer called Ga-68 . My PSA was only .80, yet these small growths were located. They were subsequently destroyed using SBRT radiation- 5 treatments on my Thoracic region and 3 treatments on my iliac. PSA declined a month later to .19. I praise God daily for His healing and His mercy.

    Hi Don. I am 70, also stage 4, and just completed SBRT treatment for two metastasis one on my hip bone and one on my spine. The cancer is destroyed in those two areas. I will now watch my PSA levels and pray they stay low. How are you doing?

      @rlfuller7,
      Hello, I'm an oncology nurse and I'm here to help with any questions you might have regarding your disease. It is important to know a few facts about prostate cancer. Most men with this diagnosis live to their life expectancy. This is a slow growing cancer. With other cancers you can go into remission and then have recurrence and only be given 13 months at best for a prognosis. With prostate cancer you can be stage 4, go into remission, then get recurrence and your prognosis would be 13 years...that would be the year 2031. By then could you imagine how many new drugs would have come onto the market. I'm here if you have any questions on treatment options, or anything you seek an answer to. Best of luck to you.
