During my surgery the Surgeon told me he did frozen biopsys before the surgery was over to ensure that all was taken out. Where he took samples and had them read before I was finished. Curious why he didnt take a sample of the nodes. Has anyone heard of people going back in for anther surgery to remove more tissue instead of radiation or hormonal therapy. To calm your nerves I will schedule an appointment asap to just talk to him about
your concerns even if your PSA is not back yet to give you some idea.
Good Luck, LIVESTRONG!!
