Got my biopsy results 2 days ago and 3 of the 14 samples showed positive. I know nothing else at this point and am meeting for consultation tomorrow. I am 52, single and very active.
I have been pouring over web sites for hours and think I know the " right " questions to ask. I assume the stage, PSA and Gleason scores play a large part in selecting a treatment. That said I am guess I am in stage 1 and based on what I read a robotic RP would be a course of action. My girlfriend whom I hoped to charm into marrying me next year will be going with me. I can only assume what he will share and what we will discuss.
This shared. I would very much appreciate advice and input from the experience CSN members.
What answers must I walk away with tommorrow?
How hard and wide should I look for a second opinion and top Dr. in my area?
Thanks and blessings to all.
