Thank you so much for your kind words.
I had a quick read of your posts and yes you and my husband have got a lot in common both age wise and being diagnosed via a company medical. Main difference is he didn't have symptoms but it sounds like yours may be something different.. fingers crossed you get that sorted.
We would have opted for the AS as per yourself ( it was offered but all consultants said due to its size this left side tumour would need treatment within 5 years so before he was 60).
So the 15mm core was the biggest but the agreement was all the 15 positive cores on the left were from one tumour.. like you his dad had PCa and that's what brought us to the FLA path.
The radical options offered just seemed like an overtreatment for a low risk diagnosis and the side effects .., well we couldn't quite get our heads around the quality of life impact.
Anyway all going well at the 9 month post stage...
Good luck with your AS ... long may it continue and you know we have taken a very positive spin on it all in realising life is fragile and so 'the small stuff' has never been so unimportant as in this last year and never has it been so clear that you need to get on with living life to the full,.. it has been strangely life enhancing!
