My husband, age 50, was diagnosed with PC on Friday the 5th. It was caught very early, is contained in the prostate, with cancer cells found in only one (1 of 12)area biopsied, with questionable cells in the area just above that. The Gleason Score is a 3 +3 = 6. We are in the Atlanta, GA area and are currently seeing a urologist out of Emory. We were given 3 treatment options being cryosurgery, radiation seeds, or radical prostatectomy. I have been reading about the robotic surgery, and I am not sure if that is the same as option 3 or something entirely different. I would love to hear from anyone who has gone with any of these options...how you chose your treatment, side effects, etc.
