Thanks for info Tony for the sake of others, alot parameters to know about
surgery, more than the average person who is informed a bit would know about
. The mention about
a doc doing
open RP and not sampling nodes, I asked a surgeon this at a support group meeting and he said he does not always do this (wow), if you are the patient you might want to ask this prior to your surgery as to "does it get done for sure" and you want to know post op pathology found, compare to biopsies findings could significantly change Partin Tables, Narayan, Bluestein and all the nomograms. Might give you a heads up on what you may have to consider down the road.
(I was referring to a speaker doc at a meeting, not Dr. Menon-in case anyone thought different)
