    Glad it worked out.
    The body is messed up for a while for sure. Even the mind from the anesthesia can be weird for a while but it sounds
    like everything is going pretty good.

    Take care
    DOB 5/1955
    Went for physical on 3/30/17 and had blood work done

    3/31/17 PSA 15.1 Refered to Urologist.
    4/5/17 DRE Negative
    4/7/17 PSA 14.1

    Final pathology report 7/28/17

    Gleason score 4+3 involving both lobes limited to the prostate
    Percentage involved by tumor 5%
    EPE -, SVI -, LVI -, LN -, PNI+, Margins -

    Update...Cancer Treatment Centers are amazing. Doctors, nurses and especially Dr. Sadeghi. We are out of network with our insurance but they said they would accept what insurance pays. Well I was skeptical...but they are true to their word!
