Tom, that sucks. You did have what looks like a fair amount of cancer with 10 of 12 cores positive. Did the path report say what % of the prostate was involved by tumor?
I would try to stay calm, which I know is tough to do, and test again in a few weeks or a month, to rule out lab error.
The good news is your g7(3+4) puts you at low intermediate risk. And with a positive margin, you increase your chances of adjuvant radiation therapy being successful.
I’m sure there will be others commenting who’ve had experience similar to yours.
