I have just been diagnosed with Stage II prostate cancer, PSA 13, Gleason Score 7 (4+3). I have selected robotic surgery with the da Vinci machine, but I have to wait 6 weeks for surgery. What is the normal wait time from time of diagnosis to surgery? How aggressive is a Gleason 7 and is there any danger in waiting? RT was a temptation, as it could be started right away, but I have been told removal of the prostate is no longer an option once RT has been done. I am 65 and in otherwise good health.
