Hello friends: I am 60yo and in otherwise good health, and I have been diagnosed with Gleason 10 following the biopsy done during the TURP surgery. Since then, I had a radical prostatectomy a few weeks ago, in the private hospital, to avoid massive waiting times in the public system we have here in Australia.
I am now PSA of 1.3 after the prostatectomy. My urologist says that the surgery removed 90% of the cancer, however I am going crazy with worry regarding the 10% that apparently is left in my pelvic area. The doc suggests the hormone treatment, to be followed by radiotherapy.
So the big question is: what are my odds of living another 5 or 10 years? I'm not ready to go yet, I have a wonderful wife and daughter who are my whole life.
Best regards friends
