Hi! My husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer 1 week ago today. His Dr. on Long Island sent us into NYC for an appt with the Director of Urology at Mt. Sinai Hospital. He gave us so much info our heads are spinning. Here are some of his stats:
The Dr. says he is not a candidate for robotic surgery because there is a lot of cancer and he wants to make sure he gets clean borders and take lymph nodes to make sure there is no cancer there. He made it very clear that there is a lot of cancer.
My husband wants to do cyberknife. He's so worried about all of the bad things that come along with surgery.
He is a VERY healthy 57 years old (and very stubborn). Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.
