My dad was just diagnosed yesterday with PSA 11 Gleason 7. He is to have a bone scan so they can check if it has spread but the nurse specialist told us that in 34 years, she hasn't seen someone with PSA of 11 have any spread to bones so 🤞. He's 69 and had a brain haemorrhage 3 years ago but has recovered relatively well from that and still drives etc. They've already said that he can't have an operation because of this so, as long as it's not spread, he'll have radiotherapy 5 days a week for 6 weeks.
This is the last thing we needed as a family as I was diagnosed last year with stage 4 kidney cancer. My father-in-law has prostate cancer too but his was already wide-spread by the time he was diagnosed last year so his treatment is palliative.
Don't know how much more we're supposed to take 💔. Has anyone else had a similar level of diagnosis and treatment that I can let him know what it was like?
