My husband (67) has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. We saw a urologist at Vanderbilt in Nashville, who has suggested that with the size of his prostate and a Gleason score of 3+3=6, his 2 options are "active surveillance, or robotic prostate removal. The prostate is so enlarged it is pushing up into the bladder, and the DR. feels that radiation could potentially damage the bladder, creating another problem, and the seed therapy will not work for him. Anyone out there with a similar situation? Surgery is scheduled for April 10th, but we are still exploring other options. Thanks in advance for any support.
