It seems most people are opting for radiation therapy. I have recently been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Gleason Score 7. After reading a 600 page book on the subject by Dr. Patrick Walsh, I decided I just wanted my prostate removed. I am 63 years old and not overweight. I was fortunate to have a friend who had a similar experience and he put me in touch with Dr. Ferrigni at Mayo Phoenix. I am scheduled to have a robotic surgery procedure on November 22. So many choices and options. I hope I’ve made the right choice.

Meeting with the surgeon tomorrow for a consultation on robotic surgery. I have already consulted with Dr. Wong in Phoenix regarding proton beam therapy. I have localized prostate cancer, 2 spots 1 and 2 cm watched over the past several years with MRI, 67 yr old, PSA 8.5 and Gleason 7. Can you tell me about your surgery experience and any side effects or complications you experienced? Picking between robotic surgery and proton beam certainly isn't easy.
