age 48, PSA of 10, Gleason of 6, T1N0M0 (cancer in 1 of 12 biopsies Sept 2011 ).Follow up bone scans and MRI negative: November 2011.
Initially met with a respected radiologist November 2011, who suggested that an active watchful waiting is an option. Respected surgeon does not feel watchful waiting is an option and is pushing for surgery due to age and PSA has scheduled radical robotic prostatectomy for next month (April).
Not sure if the potential side effects of surgery are worth it at this point.
Planning on going to CTCA next month for an "out of the box" second opinion.
Any feedback on the different points of view?
