Thanks everyone - this is what we do and it is great to have the engagement and support.
My prostate pathology was as follows. Gleason 3+3 bilaterally but mainly in the right about
3% by volume. Circumferential margin positive over 3mm. Perineural invasion Present. Vascular/lymphatic invasion Negative - seminal vesicles negative and extraprostatic extension negative. It will not be possible for me to get the Decipher test.
Treating prostate cancer seems to involve more choices at every stage than any other thing in life!
In short, it seems that my PSA is rising slowly and at some point in the next 12 months I will hit the 0.2 line - even with my pathology I think the sooner I can start SRT the better. Given my age and current good health and no ED I think I am also prepared - no major flaws in my thinking?. I appreciate there are long term SE with IGRT but hopefully minimal - that seems to be what I am hearing?
Side effect and fatigue how bad? Thanks
