I am 51 years
Old and had rp feb 11 after biopsy showed 3+4=7 Gleason on 4 of 12. PSA was 6.7. Pathology after surgery was 3+5=8. First post op PSA was 1.1 and has risen to 3.1 in only 2 months. All bone scans and CTs have been negative but getting the news today that my PSA triples in 3 months has me paralized that my cancer is growing so fast I will not live long. No symptoms at all.... Going to Cleveland Clinic for second opinion next week. Not sure about radiation or hormones. It's all overwhelming and I am having a hard time coping and living life now. My kids 12&14 don't grasp the seriousness I don't think. Anyone else in similar situation? Any advice out there? I'm really scared.
