Jim, they removed the prostate, too, if I wasn't clear enough in my post. Sorry!! It weighed 60 grams.
You were clear and that is what I understood, I just worded it poorly and meant with the prostate removed and all the nearby LN;s removed, not much left but did not realize it was 60 grams to boot so created a vacuum.
Interested too in hearing if cutting everything to de-bulk was the plan or the surgeon just kept cutting and cutting on the fly. If his BP had not been erratic after almost 10 hours in surgery, who knows how much more he would have chopped.
Still not convinced the high PSA was not due at least in part to all the Thanksgiving trauma.
You deserve a better outcome, both the plan and the execution.
