I know exactly what you mean about the wait being horrendous. We had to wait 4 months at our local hospital to find out my husband had PCa. After his MRI about 5 weeks in they sent him an appointment for February next year! Some men might have thought they were in the clear but when he phoned to query this it turned out there was 2 areas of tumour in his prostate. More waiting and eventually he had a Template biopsy which confirmed the cancer. They even called us in 2 weeks before the biopsy results were in and then asked us why we were there? We were seen by a Macmillan specialist nurse before diagnosis so I was beside myself as we then went away and had to wait another 2 weeks very much fearing the worst. I had noted on his notes below the MRI report T2c and a list of 3 & 4's. I knew this to be a cancer stage and presumably Gleason scores so did more research and frightened myself even more.
I really hope you get your results very quickly as I know every day spent waiting is agony as much for us as wife's/ partners.
After reading as much as I have come to the conclusion that any grade of cancer can have different outcomes. I have read about men diagnosed with very low grade disease going on to have serious problems but also men with very advanced still being very much alive and relatively well many many years later. It's just that we don't know. I am finding the uncertainty really hard to cope with but I guess we all eventually
put it to the back of our minds at least some of the time. I don't think the doctors always know either. ( Probably why they leave it to the man to decide how they want it treated/ or not as the case may be) I don't know of any other cancers where that happens. They can usually advise you of the best treatment for you.
My husband is opting for the robotically assisted Prostatectomy but again we will not know for certain if this has been successful. We just have to hope.
All the best and hopefully your husband's treatment will go well. Lets us know how you get on. X
