Sat and talked with my next door neighbor, I posted a week ago or so, that he had been recently dx with PC. He met with his uro today and we had aa good talk for about an hour.
He is a Gleason 7 (4+3), had 4/7 positive cores - not sure of percentages but thought they were high, staged T2x at this point. PSA was just over the 4 mark.
His will be a complicated case. He has had previous radiation in the abnomen from a stomach cancer, so they have ruled out any radiation - conventional or seeds as a primary treatment. And because he had previous cancer in the same area, the doctor does not want to do surgery.
They are talking about the Freezing method, lost the name for the moment, along with HT as his best hope.
He is calm about it, as like me, he has dealt with many surgeries and other cancers previous to us. His wife did go with him today, and they asked a lot of questions. The doctor gave him a lot of info to read. He wants me to talk to him again soon. I invited him to HW, either to join or lurk.
He is not going to rush into any possible treatment at this point. We had a good talk about that. His treatments will be much more limited than most people, so it may be a challenge to find a solution.
