Waterloo, welcome to our little corner of paradise, sorry you need to be here, but so glad you found us. It would help to know a little more about
your husbands statistics, perhaps you could make a signature like you see others here with. I was gleason 4+3 before surgery, and 3+4 after, which most feel is the better combination of a gleason 7. Was your husbands post surgery pathology report "clean", or did it indicate possible future problems? After surgery, the normal recourse would be radiation, but not enough facts to know that at this point.
This is a good place to be. Good for information, for support, to help ease your pain and fears, we are here for you.
