Welcome to the club that nobody ever hopes to join. Sorry you find yourself here but glad you found us.
I started this new thread for you and gave it a title that mentions cryosurgery. We have a couple of guys here who did cryo and they might pop in if the title catches their attention.
Sorry to hear about
your husband's diagnosis. Surgery is a bit iffy anyway for possibly node-positive cancer but one hates to have ones options taken away. Still, a combination of hormones and cryotherapy (or possibly focused ultrasound) might work well if surgery and radiation are out.
Keep us posted and we'll keep you company.
