Got my 3rd biopsy results today..the 2 preceding transrectal procedures came back as "NEG" but PSA kept increasing over the past 4 years..6---16---21(9/2012), in that period. Last Bx was a template biopsy done to hit the anterior lobes with 5/20 biopsies +, mostly 3 + 3, (1) was 3+4 and (1) 4+3 Gleasons. Last tranrectal was only 8 weeks ago so I guess I have a clean post. lobe/ localized anterior. Don't know about any perineural invasion since I have 2 weeks to wait 'til my Urologist discusses "treatment Rx options".
I'm 63, pretty good health except for DVT( shot rt. lower leg veins from infectious myofasciitis 12 years ago)/PE history on Coumadin and Grave's last year, now post I 131/hypothyroid and on Synthroid.
Anyone with a similar scenario who would like to share where they were pointed therapeutically ? Tried to read quite a bit of the Web on this subject and seemed like opinions weren't consistent...total radP results equal brachyRx results in some, different in other studies....
Will read with much interest obviously what you folks who have gone further down this road than I have say...Thanks.
