Les: As you can see by my signature it looked like I have had a pretty good outcome so far but there have been some issues that have not been resolved and I'm thinking about
going to M.D, Anderson to get a second opinion.
I had robotic surgery on June 19th 2008 at the University of Washington, my stats all looked good before and after the surgery, my PSA is still undetectable >0.02 but I have had hip pelvis pain for sometime, I talked my Uro into doing a bone scan(he thought it was a waste of time but he agreed) and it came back with two hot spots. One in the pelvis and one on a rib on my right side. He wanted to just watch them because he said with my PSA undetectable there was no way it was related to PCa. I was having none of that and had him refer me to an Onco who has scheduled an MRI for later this week but he has the same opinion as my Uro, it will be a wait and see situation even if the MRI comes back positive for a lesion because he says there is very little chance it has anything to do with PCa. He didn't rule out any other type of cancer but has done some pretty exhaustive exams with me(bloodwork and physical) and can't come up with anything. We discussed false positive bone scans but I am having some discomfort in both areas that showed positive.
The reason I'm checking with you is I am considering going to M.D, Anderson for a secon opinion and saw that you did the same. I was wondering how your experience was with them.
