Hi all, my father was diagnosed in April 17 with a Gleason 9 (5+4) as stated on the biopsy result.
He went for radical prostatectomy two months later, and the after surgery biopsy result stated it was actually a Gleason 7 (4+3).
My questions here are, is it possible it was really Gleason 7 and not 9? Which biopsy is more accurate? I guess the after surgery one since all the tumor tissue is taken to be analyzed and not just a small amount?
Dad is doing well currently, he had 6 rounds of Docetaxel (which he was able to tolerate) to get rid of the lymph nodes and is now on Zytiga for 3 months and a half to prevent further growth. Current PSA is around 3, been like that for over 3 months, no pain, no currently active bone or lymph mets, I guess what is left is microscopic.
Thanks in advance.
