Hi all, first time on..
I was diagnosed 12/09 biopsy showed 4 positive of the 12 being 47 at the time we decided on surgery. PSA was 4.5 gleason was 7 or 8. 1/09 when going through the surgery it was proven I had no margins on one side and leakage in the prostate bed. Prostate and 24 lymph nods removed. Prostate was very impacted and nerve sparing was a issue. I then went on to 37 radiation treatments. over the last 2 years my PSA was looking good 4/11 it was .01 last week I went in 1/12 and it has rised to .1, dr. seemed a bit concerned and is having me tested again in 2 months. Also last year I had a full body bone scan with negative results. I didn't think much about it but for some reason I now can't stop thinking about. Thanks to anyone that replies. Like most of you I am father and grandfather, I am 49 years old and just want to be sure I am around to see it all happen.
