KenHorse Posted April 7 Share Posted April 7 I was diagnosed with Gleason Score 8 prostate cancer late last summer. As part of the PET scans, a nodule was found on the lower lobe of my right lung. As it was very low density, the "pulmonary Board" was divided on whether it was malignant or otherwise but the consensus was to remove the lobe to be sure (and since it appeared very early stage as it was only 1.5 cm). So on January 31st of this year, I underwent a radical prostatectomy (the pathology of which was clear margins and clear lymph nodes) and this past Monday (April 3rd), I underwent the lobectomy. Both times I have been utterly amazed at how I don't feel all that bad. Tired and a little short of breath, sure but that's really it. I never had any need for opioids and have been using only Tylenol Got the pathology report back on Thursday (yes, I know that is fast!), and I dodged a bullet a 2nd time! It was identified as a non small cell adenocarcinoma but clear margins and clear lymph nodes! Doc says no need for chemo nor radiation and we go into surveillance mode (CAT scans every 6 months for now) Anyway, here I am still kicking!
