Hi, I am 47 years old and was just diagnosed on Friday. My PSA was 2.9 and I was told that was a little high for my age so we did a biopsy. Gleason score was 6 on on specimen and a couple of others were what they called suspicious. My urologis is recommending robotic surgery. My wife and I are doing a lot of reading/research to determine if surgery or radiation is the right way to go.I have two kids and am struggling with how and what to tell them. My oldest is away in college and not sure how to handle telling him. My wife is being very positive but I can tell she is scared. Has anyone had the robotic procedure?
