Ive been doing some research but seem to get some conflicting information and frankly pretty overwhelmed, while already struggling to stay calm. I was hoping to find some insights here.
My 49 year old fiancé was just diagnosed. His PSA is 16, his Gleason (4,4) is 8. He's set for the CT and Bone scan tomorrow so we'll know more. But I'm curious if anyone has any insight if, with these numbers, hormone & radiation would even be an option. It's also a little tricky trying to understand the long term prognosis with someone so young when it's this agressive.
I'm sure he'll be happy to see this board as well. I suspect it will be nice for him to know that he's not alone.
Thank you so much in advance,
