You are definitely in the right place here where you will get more information and support than you could imagine. I am fairly new here, my husand Brice has advanced Pca and post lung cancer this past year and a friend at church advised me of the forum and these people have it 'together'.
Please know that we are praying for you and your husband and my best advice to you would be if are not happy with your urologist/ get a second opinion. Get copies of every test result, make folders by specialty and take to every visit, in hopes that any treatment will not have to be delayed while waiting on test results that have already been performed. Take someone else with you to the doctor visits that can help you remember what has been said (I was so numb at our 'discovery' visit, didn't remember anything the dr. said, except, it is too late for surgery and we will try every other treatment available and start it today.
The next visit to onocologist, I took our son and best friend, just in case the news got 'better'.
try to make a list of questions before you go to the doctor and by all means.....ask the "Pros' here as they have been there, done that and "KNOW" what we are going through.
God Bless you both,
Husband - Brice
