I was recently diagnosis with Prostate cancer, (just a week ago).
I have my first appt Nov 3rd and will get all the details then.
I currently live in Florida, but work out of state, so I opted to
be given my results over the phone. So far it hasn’t impacted me
emotionally, I just want to get it taken care of ASAP and get on with
My PSA was 3.5 back in Feb when I had my first biopsy which was negative, then
6 months afterward my PSA went up to 4.5. My second biopsy was positive
with a score of 6. I can't remember anything the doctor told me over the
phone, all I heard was cancer and bla bla bla.
My doctor performs with the Da Vinci robotic system, which I hear is the way to go.
I don’t have all the details at this time to share, but I’m sure I will be back online
picking everyone’s brain for info.
For reference, my doctor is Frank D. Mastandrea, Advanced Urology of Tampa Florida.
His web site is http://www.drmastandrea.com/index.html, if anyone has heard
of his work, please let me know.
ps: I hope this is covered by insurance.
