Protons for Treatment of Recurrent PCa?

 Earlier in my ongoing adventure I proposed the following "Clinical Trial of One" to Dr Gud E Nuff:
 1. Begin with a shot or two of lupron to starve, weaken and shrink the 1.1 cm cancerous nodule identified by Mayo Clinic
2.Kill what remains with proton radiation at whatever volume it takes as determined by UFPTI
3.Reduce the liklihood of a recurrence by adopting a life long regimen of finasteride.

To date UFPTI has not responded substantively to this proposal. An unexpected turn of events has provided me an opportunity to thoroughly explore this option. Although it may take awhile to play out, and I have no way of predicting the outcome, this interim report seems warrented.
Stay tuned.
