Local Advanced Prostate Cancer

Posted 25 Jan 2019 at 08:58

My husband (58) has just been diagnosed with having Local Advanced Prostate Cancer following a TURBT 

operation to remove a tumour in his bladder.


We were told it's Local Advanced Prostate Cancer, his is an unusual cancer growth which is inoperable, Grade 4, with a Gleason grade 8.   

He is being treated for prostate cancer as the lab report said he has "seeds" in his prostate which grew through

the bladder into a 2cm tumour.    What a shock!   He had his prostate checked in November and results came back clear?????

We asked about life expectancy and was told 1-10 years!!


Hubby now has to go for a radioactive bone scan followed by hormone therapy and radiotherapy at Christies.

If cancer has spread into his bones this will be a different ball game all together i'm sure but we have to remain

positive all the same. 


Just wondered if anyone out there has a similar experience so we know what to expect

Hi there I am sure others will be along with advice/their experience. I am afraid I am having trouble seeing all the text in your post. This won’t be your fault, there are technical issues with this forum. I will let them know

That doesn't work and most of your post is missing.

MODERATORS, please can you ask techy people to try yo sort this one out?

Try editing your post
Cut or copy / delete  original into notepad (not Word!) to remove formatting
Paste back

Word processing equivalent of turning it off and on again 😂

I’ve added it as an issue for Carol to consider
