I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago and as u can imagine it’s been quite a roller coaster of info and emotions. I'm 55 and recently divorced. (and a little overwhelmed.) Post biopsy results are as follows:
(1) PSA level: 5.0
(2) Gleason score: 3+3
(3) Stage: T1c
I haven't seen the pathology report yet, but have requested it. My Urologist said very low risk cancer, 1% or less of spreading and contained in the prostate. All things considered I guess this is good news? I have not had a detailed follow up yet with options but as you can imagine Ive been researching and all treatments sounds frightening. My urologist think Active surveillance might be ok initially. Is anyone or on AS or was on AS and how long have they been so?
