I have posted already in another community, but as I am having a gay relantioship I wondered here I could share something of my story and get something of others' stories from fellow friends.
I am 49 years of age and have a partner but I find these communities best ways of sharing fears and anxieties as well as bravery and happy moments
I only found these communities after my decision of treatment, which was very difficult, but as quick as I could and thought I needed I saw a few doctors and specialists to support my decision.
Before that I did ultrasound, MRI, biopsy and PET exams.
I decided for a robot surgery and my doctor is advising me for an adjuvant RT depending anyway on the pathological report.
I have a gleason 8 (4+4) lesion n0m0 likely t3a. My psa was 12,7.
MRI and PET showed no seminal vesicles and lymph nodes invasion and body scan was also free.
So surgery is scheduled for next Thursday, April the 5th.
