How this treatment impacted my life the most

Feel lucky that I have a low Gleason score and outlook is OK, as things stand. Bit worried that scoring might be wrong, for whatever reason and fearful if cancer breaking out of the capsule. Meds for frequency of bladder activity not particularly effective.

If I had to do it all over again, would I choose the same treatment?


Why did I give this answer?

Probably. Still fairly early in my PC journey. Doing lots of research and info gathering.
