Got a copy of my post op pathology but I haven't had a chance to discuss it with the doctor yet. Appreciably worse than I thought from what I can interpret.
Tumor upgraded to Gleason 9 (5+4) occupying 80%
Apex is positive, superior margins positive, seminal vesicles positive
Apical,uretheral,posterior and bladder margins negative.
two of nine lymph nodes positive.
pT3b, pN1, pMx
We're pretty much shell shocked. The lymph node involvement really erodes your hope. Puts your fight into a different category. I assume chemo or clinical trials will be the most likely options.
