I've been reading since last night and find all of your input very informative. Thanks.
I was just diagnosed this past week, and My wife and I are just trying to digest things and begin talking about a path forward.
As a result of my GP finding a bump, I had a needle biopsy with the following results:
Right base, 2/2 cores, 5% involved, Gleason 3+3=6
Right mid, 1/2 cores, 35%, Gleason 3+4=7
Right apex and left base benign
Left mid, 3/3 cores, 40%, Gleason 3+4=7
Left Apex, 1/2 cores, 40%, Gleason 3+4=7
My doc says it's Stage 2b.
I'm 56 and in good health. PSA about 1-2.
I'm with Kaiser in No. Cal. I'll be seeing my urologist on this Wednesday.
Any advice as to what questions I should ask?
