We went to Cleveland Clinic and met surgeon yesterday. My husband and I are happy with what we saw and what we heard.
The surgeon told us that with my husband's age, psa, gleason score, and stage, both radiation and surgery will work fine, but surgery would give little more option down the road. His did about
800 robotic surgery for PC and have never had a case needs to convert to
open. He said 80% of his patient who are under 60 would recover from ED in a year. Incontinence will fully recover in a year as well for 90% of his patient if they keep working on their pc muscle.
Of curse the surgeon likes my husband as a patient as well because my husband is young, healthy and fit, would be a good surgery candidate.
also, both of us like the environmental in the hospital, the interior design is looking great, the service is good. Plus there are couple nice tea/sushi bar and spa store one the first floor are nice to spend time at.
On our way back, my husband ask me to cancel his another surgeon interview scheduled in next week. He doesn't bother to take look at another one.
We are glad that things go well so far. We almost want celebrate for fund a good doctor that he likes.
Well, from day one when we know we have PC, we celebrate every single day we spend with each other, with kids and family. We are able to see more beautiful thing that GOD give us that we couldn't see before and enjoy more of our life. In another word, PC is one kind of gift.
I am so glad that I got so much help and support from everyone here. Without you, our war with PC would be lot harder!
I know we have more to fight at next step, surgery and recover process. So we keep up and hope everyone keep up and keep positive on your own journal too.
Best wish for everyone.
