This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer.
There are only four rules:

  • No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
  • No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
  • No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
  • Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making

Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.

wait time

I am seeing Dr. Eastham at Sloane for robotic Feb 2.Of 3 positive cores,worst was 7(3+4)50%. PSA was 4.04.Diagnosis was Oct 10.Anyone care to comment on the long wait time.Frank Ruiss Umpiresatch@yahoo.com.Thanks

Re: wait time

Frank:
After making your decision waiting is the pits.
You have an intermediate(aggressive)level diagnosis with a low PSA, so a two+ months wait is unlikely to affect your outcome all that much.
Depending on how much time you devoted to research prior to your decision, you might consider additional research to ensure you have made the very best decision for yourself and your circumstances.
Best wishes Don O.

Re: wait time

Hi Frank,
I agree with Don's words of wisdom. Feb should be fin but I would not leave it any longer than that unless you are offered short term ADT.
