Hi to All
Well it's been 11 days since my surgery and everything is doing better than expected.Went into surgery 10/4/11 at 7:00 am back in recovery at 9:00am.Cath. came out 10/11/11 and what a relief.I'm staying dry at night and using 1 pad during the day.I started walking in the hospital and I have been walking everyday.On my first Doc appointment we talked to the Doctor and he said everything went just fine but my Path report came back different from the biopsy report.The first was 3+3=6 now it's 3+4=7 can some tell me what this means in plain English.
This is the Final Diagnosis I got from my Doctor.
Tumor involves the left lobe (7/20 paraffin blocks)
Extraprostatic extension: Not identified
Seminal vesicle invasion : Not identified
Lymphovascular invasion : Not identified
Capsule : Negative
AJCC Pathologic stage pT2b pNX
Perineural invasion is identified.There is a significant proportion of grade 4 tumor present,but it appears to be slightly less in quantity than the grade 3 tumor.
Also has anyone experienced night sweats.I don't think I'm running a fever because I don't have any chills I'LL wake up and my shirt is wet.
