I am looking at treatment options in Arizona (I live in Tucson). I was recently diagnosed when my PSA went from 3.9 in June 08 to 6.0 in May 09. The biopsy showed 3 of 12 with RLB: 35%, RLM: 75% and RA: 50%. My Gleason were all 3+3. RLB and RLM showed perinueral invasion. My urologist is optimistic for either surgery or Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT). I am thinking get it out now and look for IGRT if it returns. I am looking for someone with experience in DaVinci in the area or even California. Also any advice on which way to go. As with most, I am concerned with getting rid of the cancer, not peeing my pants and have a good sex life...I am ONLY 57. I see another Dr. in the mornig for a second but will looking for a 3rd. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks to all and here is wishing you good luck in kicking this thing.
