Yesterday I received my results on the Guided MRI Biopsy performed on Jan. 6. I had a Trans rectal ultrasonography (TRUS) back in April with a Gleason 0f 4+3=7. As you all know i have been on AS since my TRUS Biopsy.
There was no significant difference in the Guided and the TRUS. Except they took 16 cores and 4 from the target and 12 elsewhere. All 4 from that core was cancer. which they labeled 4+3 =7. (Stage T1c) still capsulized. The tumor was on the left of the cancer wall.
No doubt, I am seeing an oncologist this month for radiation treatment. Removal of prostate not an option, because of age.
Urologist said I could go either way, AS Or treatment. I thought to my self, you don't have this disease in your body that is deadly and can kill you. Hell, I don't expect to live forever, but while I am here , I can be pro active and forget about the daily anxiety and worries about the cancer, and try for a cure. Cancer lurking in my body is a no, no to me at this point.
His thinking at my age something else would find my demise before
the cancer. Well, lets roll the dice and see.
