Stage 3A

Age 53 psa of 5.7 then one month later 12. Biopsy showed prostate cancer gleason 7- 3+4. I decided to go with robotic surgery and had to wait almost 3 months to get in. Recovery went very well. Walked every day to keep active. Got my pathology report gleason went to 9-4+5 no seminal or lymph involvement and negative margins. 3 month checkup psa was <.05. Within the first year it gradually went up to .38. Had 39 radiation treatments and lupron. Been on lupron for a year and a year to go. Psa is now <.01 hopefully psa will stay that way after lupron is done!!! Anyone else with similar story?
