Thanks, Bill, for the encouragement
Good luck with your own surgery!
I'm reassured that this is a pretty good pathology report. But I think we're both worried about
the positive margins, than just about
anything else. My guy is struggling in part because he thinks it's so unfair -- he was careful to have his PSA regularly tested, had a biopsy immediately when his PSA rose, even though his doctor said he could probably wait and see for a few months. Then, when the biopsy came back positive for cancer, he scheduled surgery for as soon as his doctor would permit it (which was once he healed from the biopsy). I think even his doctor was surprised that he found a larger amount of cancer than expected (a lot in the right lobe, a smaller amount in the left). Anyway, my guy is left wondering what more he could have done to find the cancer sooner.
