49 divorced father of 3 children who live with me week yes week no. I am a financial controller for profession and live a happy gay relatioship now.
I was diagnosed with PC last month, February the 15th. Possibly a T3a N0 M0 Gleason 8 (4+4) psa 12,7.
Made ultrasounds, MRI, biopsy and PET exams. Body scan clear. MRI and PET showed no seminal vesicles and lymph nodes invasion but probable extracapsular disease.
I have seen 3 doctors and a radiotherapist as well as discussed the issue with a cousin who is a doctor for a decision of treatment.
Decided on robot surgery with likely RT adjuvant treatment dependent on pathological report after surgery.
Surgery scheduled for April the 5th and I am nervous and afraid of the consequences of the surgery and the follow up of PSA. However I know I couldn't wait to start treatment.
Happy to be in a group like this and waiting for any feedback. Promise to provide further my experience.
