IPSS - International Prostate Symptom Score
I was a Gleason 6... On the Gleason score table, an "8" indicates a more "agressive" cancer cells... There is a ton of info here and on the web about Gleason scores. Some of the members here have had an "8"... Maybe they can explain to you in better detail what this means...
On the pathology report, I got mine at the 8 day mark when I went in and got the catheter removed.
Avis & I are praying for you and Rod... I know this is very stressful!!! Stay calm, you have Rod safe at home now... You are on the other side now!
Wrap yourself in the comfort that Jesus is with you on this journey... Along with all of us!
