Good morning, I'm 61 years old and recently diagnosis with PC. My PSA was 5.26. Ordered a DRE, uro did not feel anything on the prostate. Had the bio, 8 cores from each lobe. Right lobe ok. Left lobe 2 out of the 8 had cancer. One 0.67% other 3.%. Stage T1C. Will start proton therapy (radiation) on June 20th in Oklahoma City (Procure). 44 treatments. BC/BS will not pay, did so until early 2015.
I'm a little nervous but feel very lucky that they and I caught this early. Any others out there with similar stories? Would like to hear feed back and what I should expect. Heading down to OK real soon for the Visicoil Markers then later for CT and MRI.
What are those coils used for anyway? Thank you to all who respond. Keep the faith. My family members are great help in this matter, could not of got this far without them. Thanks to all of you.
