Final cancer wrap up, for now

The catheter is out & the folks are on their way back to OKC.   The follow up exam found that the cancer was on neck of bladder and seminal vessels, which was to be expected given the Gleason score of 9.  My dad will monitor this situation with PSA tests every 3 months to see what, if anything, happens.  If the PSA number goes up & stays up, then hormone therapy &/or radiation might be in the cards. There’s also a 60% chance of reoccurence within 10 years, so we’ll be watching for that too.

On a side note, Dr. Menon & his staff at The Vattikuti Urology Institute were incredible in their world class care & treatment of my family & we were very lucky to have their services.
