Hello, my wife does all the writing here on the forum, I just read and learn, so I hope I am doing this right.....
I have noticed that the biopsy gleason predictors and the actual pathology gleason scores are almost always spot on, usually no more than one point off, and I attribute some of that to the time laspe between biopsy and surgery. I think it is only natual to second guess everything when you are going though the misery of recovery, Lord knows I have had my moments, and it only reinforces how important it is to get all the info you can before you decide on your course of action. You can find out a lot in six weeks, the average waiting time between biopsy and treatment, and you don't want to be on this side wishing you had asked your Doctor about this or that, so I applaud anyone who helps the new guys by sharing their experiences. Has certainly helped me and Cindy.
