I am a 57 year old male that has Adenocarcinoma cancer in my left lobe i have 5/6 with cancer 3 + 3 =6 and Right side 1 out of 6 cores with 3+3=6. I have a T1c ? also my psa is now 11.8 from 3.4 5 years ago. I am scared that it is going to get worse and want to know if i should get it removed as a friend had a different type of cancer and did radiation and was alsways sick. I have a hard time urinating and also now have ED. Any recomendations or results. Thanks

My husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer about 3 months ago and on the 7th of Dec,2016 he had his prostate gland remove.He was told he was a 7 on a Gleason scale but the urologist called 12-12-16 to check on him and he was actually 8 Gleason scale. He has the Cath out next week,but was told one of the tumors was very aggressive.He will have another psa text in 4 weeks and if it's showing any signs they are going to take about radiation. What are the chances of him being about to work during radiation  treatments

in the meantime, it would be really useful to have a complete pathology report on the prostate.

Well they finally rescheduled me for surgery on the 20th of Dec instead of middle of January, glad to be finally getting this behind me so i can move forwards. The only downside is i dont know how i will be for Christmas but will deal with it when it gets here, but from what everyone says i should be up and walking so i will try and eat at the kitchen table with the rest of the family. we are keeping it simple as i usually do all the cooking but my brother is going to do it with me telling him what to do. hope my insurance is paid up as they might need it after dinner...lol. The Home Depot 5 gallon bucket is going to look real nice with the Table Setting. gotta keep my humor Merry Christmas everyone and will try to post Friday or Saturday on how it went.

LvGuy,

Glad you are getting your proceedure done sooner than later. I wish you a VERY SPEEDY RECOVERY and many, many more Christmas celebrations without the "Home Depot Bucket".  I got my Cath out two days before Christmas (2013).  I had been using a State Liquor Store bag to take my Cath Bag with me,  when I went to doctor's appointments.  That always got a big laugh from the medical staff, especially my Urologist..  Yes, Keep that humor. 

As soon as you're able, let us know how you're doing. 

Good Luck, and wishing you a Merry, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and many more.

Love, Peace and God Bless

Will

I pray that you are blessed with most positive of outcomes.  I tread not too far behind you my friend at 60 years with a recent PSA = 4.4 (not too bad), Gleasons in 3 of 12 at (3+4, 3+4, 4+3), N0, no PNI detected, capsule appears intact, and a small 26 cc gland (probably a good factor).  Looking like RALRP for me in late January.

Getting ready to go to the hospital and getting all my prep done for the Open Surgery. They are having me wipe down my body with some wipes called 2% Chlorhexidine cloths (CHG) for the reduction of risk of infections. Supposed to reduce bacteria on the skin. the stuff stings but not too bad. got a bag packed with the laptop , charger and real loose sweats and oversized t-shirts. it is 28 degrees out and for Las Vegas that is freezing cold as we also have the wind this morning. But i will make it, The next time i post will be on a new thread for post surgery, maybe tonight.

LvGuy,

When talking about being positive, I would recommend talking with Will Doran.  He is the survivor that sees all forms in the positive way. He has survived a critical case that most would dare in being positive. He doesn’t have negatives and no matter how scare would be the case he always provide good recommendations.

I am glad to know of your decision in a trip to Europe.  And I think that I know where you are going if the theme is a “2nd honeymoon”; travelling the Romantic Road in the Bavaria region. It is simple wonderful.  You and your wife will love it.

I think that you should not miss a visit to Neuschwanstein Castle in Füssen . This is the one that served as the model by Walt Disney to represent each Disneyland. It makes part of the 19th-century Romanticism period. Some people say that it got its style from the Portuguese Pena Palace also built in those romantic times and now turned into a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Best wishes for a good start in the New Year.
