Hello. I was diagnosed in 2010 at the age of 44. Gleason score 3+4, downgraded to 3+3. I opted for robotic RP, didn't take. Got salvage radiation, didn't take. On my doctors's advice, I'm headed to the Mayo Clinic in May for a C-11 PET Scan. We're hoping it will pinpoint a spot where the cancer is, such as a lymph node, which then can be removed. Any of y'all benefited from this?
I'm kinda bitter at the moment. I wish I had waited a while to get treated, but at the time, because of my age, I was encouraged to get surgery. I'm doing ok, pretty leaky but no serious Ed problems. My PSA is still very low, but doubling about every 9 months. I'm not looking forward to future treatment.
Thank you, it's good to share and vent.
