I just hope they know for sure how cells without cancer or dysplasia are supposed to look after radiation. At least otherwise I have a good deal of relief since so many people have said it all looks good.

DH got his biopsy results last Friday, and unfortunately they found cancer in the sample. They scheduled him for a CT scan, which was Monday. The CT scan was to determine if the cancer had spread. The previous MRI results made it appear local only, since it didn’t detect any lymph node or vascular invasion. The only real concern was that there was potentially microscopic invasion of the prostate. The ultrasound didn’t think so.
We got the CT scan results Monday night (fast) and it looked really good on paper. The oncologist called, very exited, Tuesday to confirm that there is no spread. His most recent scan was in December. We know the oncologist wouldn’t have released that report Monday night, had the CT scan found mets.
So, the plan is surgery. DH is taking it like a champ, and I’m thrilled.
It’s been a long road, and we feel like W&W was a good idea since he didn’t feel at all comfortable with his previous surgeon, and we seem to be discovering it was caught early enough for a successful salvage operation.
His new surgeon is fantastic, and I know he’s in good hands.
