Day after CT scan...
Results came back as "normal", which I take to mean as cancer is localized and not spread. Follow up discussion with doctor in future.
Prior to test, as mentioned, two 450ml barium drinks. First drink not all that bad. The second a little slower. Leaves an odd taste in mouth. But certainly nothing one will be gagging on. Or if from youth, in my case, that one night drinking kool-aid mixed with Barcadi's 151, these barium drinks are just fine.
The test. I was surprised when an IV had to be inserted. Iodine IV. Tech said I may get a very warm feeling. This never happened. Test took about
10 mins. During each scan you hold your breath for about
The barium drinks to seem to cause some constipation. Laxative to address. The tech mentioned, with more elderly, the opposite may be true if the person is not all that hydrated.
Prostate, right base, core biopsies:
Gleason’s grade 3+3=6.
Carcinoma involving two core biopsies and 50% of sampled tissue with a linear measurement ofapproximately 3 mm.
Perineural infiltration present.
