Last week I underwent a series of tests and procedures conducted by a group of highly trained professionals using a variety of sophisticated equipment to: (1) determine whether the cancer has spread beyond my prostate (2) properly align my body to administer the exact amount of proton energy to its target area and (3) provide a data base for developing a comprehensive treatment plan. It was indeed an impressive undertaking. I will not know the results of the diagnostic tests for a week or two.
Another major development occured this week. I was given a start date. My treatment begins January 14, 2009.
