Biopsy results are back and were positive, so the doctor is happy about that. He suspects that it is just in the prostate lining only due to the PSA being so low at .24. He’s having him go for a 3D ultrasound just to be safe tho and also scheduling an appointment with the oncologist as well. He is predicting radiation and possibly hormones as well.
For those who aren’t up on out story my dad had a RP 5 years ago and has been good. PSA was .1 in April and doctor said if it went up anymore at next checkup he was digging in. It went to .24 in October and doctor felt a bump on prostate bed. He wanted biopsy to be positive so that we knew that was where it was.
Ok then, so it sounds like you have a plan for more treatment. Consider adding a signature containing details like post op pathology. What was his Gleason sore, and did they "get it all" as they like to say? ( Obviously not, but just wondering what they were expecting these last 5 years). Any way, good luck with any upcoming treatments!
