Thursday I returned to my Urologist for a urinary issue and told him again where i was in my choices of treatment. He strongly urged me not to have Da Vinci procedure or Watchful Waiting. He felt the radical was too invasive when other options are available and I am too young for WW. I decided to go with ProstRcision (seeds). I had temporarily set up the seeds implants for this month, but was not sure if i was committed to it. Was accepted at Emory for RP so things were in place.
Will keep you up to date, but again, I wish to thank each of you that offered advice and your experiences. The helped more than you could know. One thing that struck me was the timing. He indicated that with a gleason of 3+4 I should get it started as soon as possible because of the 4. Will have the seeds implanted in a few weeks and the treatments after the holidays.
