My partner of 11 years was recently diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. He is 48 years old and his PSA is 30 and he is an 8 on the Gleason scale. Needless to say, we are both terriefied. We live outside of Boston and are looking for the best care and doctors possible. We are currently working with Lahey Clinic in Burlington. His surgeon is pretty aggressive and quick to respond and we have been very happy with the care so far. If surgery is needed, he will most likely use the DaVinci robotics. Anyone out been through this with their partner? How do I help? What should I do? What should I expect? Is there anyone who has had care in Massachusetts? Are there any doctors or programs you would suggest?
Thanks and peace to all.
