Im one of those guys, Rob, near perfect pathology.
AK, tough situation, but it just shows how crazy this disease can be, and it also shows how sometimes we can do all the right things, from pre diagnosis screening all the way to treatment and beyond, and still some things are just out of our control. I sometimes wonder, when my first biopsy was negative, and my URO wanted an MRI, which was refused by the insurance company, had I just paid out of pocket, would I have caught it sooner? Would I have not ended up with SRT & ADT?
But it doesn’t matter, water order the bridge.
So AK, it is what it is, don’t think what could’ve been. Move forward from here. See an MO. You likely can wait quite a while before you need to start ADT
