After reading FSMbeerMan's post, and the replies, I want to go a step further.
When I was dx in 1/10, I was told I had lymph node involvement, so surgery was out of the question. Fast forward to today, and it turns out that no lymph nodes were involved, but one biopsy core did show "possible" Perineural Invasion. I've been on Lupron the whole time, Zytiga added last year after a spike in PSA, and Xgeva started 7 months ago. Last year I had three mets, today I have none.
My question: Is it too late for surgery? Can it even be an option? Would it improve my Quality of Life? I'd like to hear from whomever has some input before I bring it up with my Uro.
