My husband had his histology results yesterday after having his prostate removed and we were told his tumour was a little larger than they first though but his lymph nodes were clear and his margins were negative ( hope I have said this right) so it was good news.
His Consultant then went onto explain that he had to tell us about a trial that was being offered to men who had just had their prostrate removed. It seems there was two groups and one group would have a course of radiotherapy and the other group would have nothing. If you agree to sign up for this trial there is no way at the beginning of knowing which group you will go into. The Consultant said that we could go and listen to a talk on the subject first to get an insight into why they are running this trial etc
We are now confused and unsure whether my husband should do this, has anyone else been offered this and if they had what was their thoughts on the subject?
The Consultant said with my husbands results he wouldn't be offering radiotherapy and only would do so if my husband's PSA went up.
Grateful for any comments, thank you
