Progression v Regression and timing of RT

Hello all, I am placing this in both Duyputren's and Ledderhose threads, as concerns both my hands and feet.

I just did my first round of RT and was confused by a couple things. The doctor seemed to think my nodules might be smaller than the last time I saw him, last month, and I can not really say for sure. He first said to go ahead and radiate everything, two feet and a hand, but I had heard that if the disease wasn't growing, RT would not help. I asked him and he said he had hesitated, and left it to me. I said next that only the one foot was most bothersome, so he said we should start with that. I am questioning this choice and am wondering how people tell if they are in a progressive/regressive stage, and what is the right thing to do with the timing of RT treatment?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Tamara
