Hi I was hoping some of you can give advice either from your experiences or experiences of others with similar stats.
My father was diagnosed with PC about
4 weeks ago.
12/12 biopsies came back positive, 10 (3X4) and 2 (4X3)
He has Gleason 7 and a Psa of 4.1 with one perineural invasion.
Went for Bone Scan and Ct Scan and both negative.
He is considering Robotic surgery because he is concerned about
the loss of blood and the side effects of
open. After reading so much statistics online it seems that
open is the best way to go. Better cure rates, more extension into the lymph nodes, etc. I am worried his choice to go robotic will be a huge mistake considering he is Gleason 7.
If anyone can help me or give me feedback, advice I would really appreciate it.
