I went to the surgeon yesterday for check on blood in urine. It's clean now. Had him to feel lower abs after lifting that 50# suitcase which brought subsequent pain. He said he could not "feel" a hernia, Praise The Lord! Then he sent me to the lab for my first blood report post surgery.
It was 0.011, which I understand is very good, right? Before he got out the door, I handed him the questions about my cancer which I had never heard. Since I was referrer to him by another urologist, he did not have the post biopsy stats handy, but did have have the path stats frm the actual removed prostate which he said is better (I'm sure it is too). So here they are:
Age: 63 (I can hardly believe that one!)
Radical open Surgery -- 01/14/07
PSA before biopsy -- 7
Cancer was in both sides
Gleason grade -- 3+3=6
Stage of cancer -- T2c; No Mo. (no disant mastisis, according to Scardino)
Next PSA -- July 26
Those are good stats, aren't they?
