I a very have similar situation, so following this thread with interest.
Also 53, 3+4, grade 2, T2a going in to nerve-sparing. Had op 1st June and follow up call 21st July after chasing hard. Then got a slot but no chance to get PSA beforehand. Good job we are not in a hurry, eh?
Consultant informed of ‘free upgrade’ to 4+3, described as ‘touching margin’ (whatever that means) but that could be a tear during nerve sparing. He didn’t mention multiple margins on the call. Get PSA done 3 monthly, speak in 6 weeks.
Received report today, 4+3, grade 3 with tertiary grade 5 (worrying), pT2c, and…
- Circumferential margin left posterior/lateral, intraprostatic, <3mm. Earlier in report it states surgical incisions: Absent, so assume this margin can’t be down to that.
- Apical margin: <3mm. (I assume from this that Apical margin was extraprostatic?)
So blood Wednesday then waiting for first PSA. More anxiety. And more questions for next Consultant call 1st Sept.
