Today marks 3 years since I came home from work to a message on the answering machine. "This is ___ at Dr. N's office, we have your biopsy results back, please call as soon as you can."
I called, and was told I had 3 positive cores, and life changed.
End result: RALP in February (a little over 2 months later), and I hit the Trifecta. I also joined this forum, got to know some of the guys really well, have (hopefully) talked a few newbies off the ledge, and life is good. I guess my message is--there IS life after diagnosis. And after treatment.
Age at Diagnosis: 56
RALP on 2/17/15, BJC St. Louis, Dr. Figenshau
58.5g, G3+4, 20%, 4 quadrants involved
PSA 3/10/15: 0.10
