Great news in the circumstances, Chris. There's always a risk with whatever treatment path you follow, but surgery actually gets inside and looks and feels, so is to my mind the most certain. Best wishes for the operation.

Do it Chris, I mentored my father from diagnosis to his death 12 years later from prostate cancer & my conclusion after listening to and discussing with the specialist & from research was that surgery is the only sure way to deal with it. My father chose not to regrettably. Even bombarding with radiation is at best "hit and miss" plus it has collateral damage.
Strongly urge anyone who has this diagnosis to go for surgery as the only sure way to beat it.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery & look forward to seeing you & Marg back on the road ASAP :TU

Quick update. I had the bone scan and tissue scan that shows the cancer is still within the prostate. My last meeting with my Urologist on July 12th indicated a "meet and greet" with the surgeon in a couple of weeks wit surgery to follow in early to mid August. Despite annoying as many people at the hospital both personally and by telephone, I have still not even got to the "meet and greet" part to discuss surgery and get a fixed date for surgery. In the meantime the hospital has booked a "post surgery" appointment for me for next Wednesday 30th August. They are now aware that their system has failed and I am waiting (im)patiently for some more progress
On a more positive note I have been approved to have cataract surgery on my right eye - time frame within 4 months. :TU

Chris, when ya get all ya bits fixed up matey, you will be darn right dangerous! Hope they get their act together and you have your dates sorted soon, the not knowing and delays must be very frustrating. Chin up old fella and best wishes that it all goes smoothly. ;)

Important to stay positive, and to beam 'we are gonna Fix you' thoughts to that little lump of errand tissue. I couldn't wait have my little passenger thrown off the bus: waiting is the hardest part of it all. All the best.

Thanks for all the positive input. I did get a date for surgery (Oct 3rd) I was advised by telephone on September 11th, but another call on September 14th postponed that appointment and have now got a pencilled in date of October 17th. Labour weekend in a hospital bed !! Fingers crossed that they don't bump the date again :-T
