Yesterday Paco had his first appointment with uro after operation.
The pathology results quite good :) Tumor contained inside the prostate. pT2a.
We were told that in some hospitals OH would be offered low RT since, despite being a contained tumor it's 4+3=7 Gleason, but not in that hospital and in his opinion. Frequent PSA tests and if under 0,4 (hope I got it right), no problem.
There is something in the biopsy I didn't like: perineural invasion. However the consultant didn't seem worried about it. Said it was much usual in this kind of tumors, do you know st about it? I've been googling but nothing clarifying found. Anyway, the uro said it was ok and, as Lyn says, I must beieve doctors and not let my imagination and fears fly.
No pain when catheter and stitches removed. Actually, as I had been said on here by some friends, he felt a great relief.
Almost continent first day.
PSA test in six weeks time and nwe appointment with uro.
Does it all sound correct to you?
We are happy we chose this nice and experienced surgeon. And a great hospital too, in Madrid.
Thanks to all of you for the support you have been giving me during these hard period. I'll continue to update and, as far as I am able, to help others with the experience now I have got.
