I have finally read a copy of my biopsy report. I just didn't seem to know as much about
my PC as the rest of you knew about
yours. I am not sure that I still do. Basically I know 2 of 12 samples were 10% or less involved. I appears to me by reading many of your stories that does not mean much as once the prostate is removed it could be more than 10% involved as they just might have missed it during the biopsy. (is this correct)?
I have my consultation appointment on 10/29/2007 with Dr. Duke Herrell at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. I have heard good things about him. I have heard that he may be booked up and may not get my surgery done as soon as I would like. I will try to think positive that is not true.
Thanks to all of you I think I have a good idea of what to expect. I am still having my ups and downs but for the most part remain positive.
I am tying to eat properly and exercise more. If there are any nutritional supplements that you know of that might help me, I would appreciate hearing about them.
Alot of great folks on this site and I will say a big prayer for all of you.
Thanks for your help.
