I am a gay prostate cancer survivor and this site has literally saved my life. I had an RP 3 Years ago at 51 years old. PSA rose to 11, 5 out of 12 biopsy cores were positive. Gleason 3+4.
I unfortunately did not find this site until after my surgery and really feel like the whole process was rushed….
I now have a friend in a very similar situation. His doctor is really pushing the HIFU option. I had never heard of it. I know some basic information, like insurance doesn’t pay, but I’m hoping you all can weigh in with some facts as well as pros and cons.
I’m hoping my friend joins this group… you are an amazing group and I wouldn’t be where I am today without all the support.
