Hello everyone. I'm new to the site so here goes.
I am 51 and in good health. The lab report which was included with an "approved" life insurance policy binder indicated a PSA of 22. My family Dr. was suprised the policy was approved and did new blood work which confirmed PSA 22. So I got plugged into the system and here it is:
12 of 12 POSITIVE
4 plus 5 GLEASON 9
Scan is negative for obvious metastisis (Does not rule out Micro)
Prostate is normal size with palpable mass
Plan of attack:
Consult with Dr. Eun at Phila. Penn
Refers to this as the "Tiger"
Started Lupron 2 weeks ago pre surgery
Non-nerve sparing RP scheduled in late December (hohoho) DiVinchi
Along with nerve bundles...Lymphnode Dissection in pelvis and bladder neck area.
Post surgey plan is radiation with Lupron therapy.
Dr. Eun has indicated a high chance of Metastatic desease and a high risk of PSA recurrance.
He states we must "through the book at it"
How does this plan sound to you guys? Tim
