Just to update you, my husband and I went to see the consultant yesterday to get his results/full diagnosis.
We were told his bone scan was clear, phew, but the cancer in the prostate is locally advanced and has spread into the lymph nodes, although they seem to think they have caught the spread early. So we are not in the 'cure' camp and have been described as 'on the fence' and between the two camps. So he started his hormone therapy today and is on BICALUTAMIDE. He will have radical radiotherapy roughly next February where they will treat the spread as well as the prostate. Results were T3b N1 M0, haven't really looked up what this means yet but the consultant said the N1 was the important bit. So along with his PSA of 19.4 and Gleason 5+3, any words of wisdom/advice would be very welcome.
We did come away feeling fairly relieved/positive that there was some hope, as I guess we had prepared ourselves for possible worse news.
Would really appreciate to hear what you think,
