Here is why I ask. My treatment is being dictated by my aggressive Gleason of 4+4. With a lower Gleason, I could opt for a different treatment. One month ago my PSA dropped from 6.8 to 5.1. What if my Gleason may now be lower? I had my biopsy samples read by two separate hospitals including Dr. Epstein at Johns Hopkins, so I doubt if the reading from three months ago was wrong. I sure would like to know if it changed. Has anybody had two biopsies, and if so:
Were your Gleason scores different on the second reading?
How many months apart were they done?
What was the basis that you had a second biopsy?
