Words can not express what it means to me to have all of your support! I forgot to mention my PSA - Over the last several years it has been gradually climbing - in the normal range. This time it came back 5.1 and just to recap I am 56 - out of twelve biopsies 1 came back positive. Less than 5% tissue. My gleason score is 3+3=6. I also have glandular atrophy and chronic inflammation. I am headed to a specialist in our state capitol - Boise. I see him tomorrow, he does the da Vinci method. On May 14th I see a specialist in SLC, UT who does not do the da Vinci method, but a more hands on approach. I am interested to know how many surgeries they both have done. Their success rates - which method saves the nerve bundles! I agree with those who have stated to take my time in deciding who does the surgery... I will not rush into this decision. My wife tells me, A man is not a man because of is (goods), but who he is and how he treats people from his heart, soul, and actions. She said I am already the Best and if anything has to be taken out - I am not less - but more, for surviving...
