Living in denmark  europe.
had a PSA test---rutine.     came back with 26.
gleeson 6
had 12 biopsi.
Had a bone scan-negative result
now they want to remove my Lymph glands for testing as a prelude to
3 months hormone treatment followed by 39 radiation.
They will implant some gold pieces in the prodtrate so that they can aim the radiation canon precisely
I think the hormone treatment continues afterwards.
