    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Following removal of my prostate, the pathology report indicated seminal vesicle invasion and perineal invasion. Fortunately, not in the lymph nodes and prior scans indicate no metastisis.

    I am in the middle of this decision point regarding combination of adjuvant radiotherapy, preceded by androgen deprivation therapy to slow down the growth of my very aggressive cancer until we can begin radiation.

    Decision Point

    My Gleason score is 9 and I am very concerned that in the period following surgery, while waiting to begin radiation, the cancer might move out of the prostate bed. I want to learn more from others about beginning hormone therapy to slow the cancers growth during this waiting period.
