Well this was the first time I talked to a urologist after my diagnosis. I went in to talk about going to the bathroom every 30 min and he gave me some options to potentially take another med to reduce the prostate if my bladder is emptying out or since I’m young to potentially remove my prostate and lymph’s, if I qualify on a trial test that may prolong life and knock out the frequent bathroom visits as well.
That took me back a bit, he was saying that advance prostate metastasis patients who are younger are having their prostates and lymph’s removed but, there isn’t enough data to support that process to be the answer. He did mention that when then Cancer comes back through the prostate it could be worse.
I don’t want to remove my prostate if it doesn’t make sense. The problems that come with that are huge. And there is no guarantee that it would benefit me at all.
