    Hi Ace, that caught my eye too. I suppose the positive margin could have been at the apex - which is common as there isn't much fat in that area to allow for a wide cut. Also, I think most surgeons...

    Seems I remember my surgeon telling me they need to wait 6 weeks to let the colon heal so as not to get an infection during the surgery. Remember, it's had 12 or so holes poked through it.

    Michael,

    Agreed that this is a great chart to share. It shows that in those patients that had a PSA <0.5 only perhaps 15% had cancer in the prostate bed. So I'm wondering what the percentage of...
