Decided on treatment

Last updated: June 2023

I posted three months ago that I was somewhat undecided about having treatment. I had been under active surveillance and the doctor wanted to do the third set of biopsies. I choose treatment and last Wednesday I had my prostate removed with the DaVinci robotic surgery. The two days after surgery were rough. The pain was extreme. Every day since then I am getting stronger and have very little discomfort. The catheter is a little hassle not bad. Today the doctor called with the pathology, my cancer had advanced and was a 4+3 and he said it was good that I removed it. The lymph nodes are clear.
