I have been reading LOTS and I guess this disease is frustrating for me since I am a nurse. In most disease states, even most diagnoses of cancer, it appears the treatment is pretty clear cut. With this one though, it is such a hard decision. My husband (age 51, Gleason of 3+3)is happy with his choice (DaVinci surgery), I am having a little difficulty. The more I read the more confused I become. The book I'm reading now is written by a urologist and it is called "The Big Scare", and this doc's opinions seem valid. You see, he is a urologist who has practiced many years, and most of those years were in the VA system, where the number of procedures he did had NO IMPACT on his salary. It makes him a pretty believable source for me. It seems every specialist we've seen all say Jesse is perfect for their specialty. I don't trust any of them! Anyone else out there feel like this?
