Hi my name is Rhody this is my first post. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in May of 2017. My father died from metastatic PC in 1991and I had routine PSAs and digital exams since then. My PSA during a regular exam in Dec. 2016 was 5.86, after several rechecks I had a biopsy in May 2017, where cancer was found in 2 of 8 samples. My Gleason score was 4+5, aggressive cancer and after talking with my urologist and reading this blog and another I decided to have a robotic prostatectomy. I had surgery August 31, had little pain from the surgery and surgeon thought the cancerr was contained in the gland. I had my first post op PSA in Dec 2017 which was 0.08. I continue to heal and have just a little leakage while trying to live mindfully and feeling lucky for the treatment i was provided.
