My Husband has Prostate Cancer - now what?

My husband got the call on Thursday night from his urologist - following a biopsy the previous week - the biopsy was done because the urologist said his PSA was elevated.

The urologist told my husband that we need to meet with the Cancer Team - a urologist, a radiologist & some one else he can't recall in February & discuss my husbands options. He was told he has 3 options:

1. Surgery to remove the prostate
2. Radiation
3. Do nothing

My husband will be 62 in 2 weeks. We are both overwhelmed at this time.

We leave for an 8 day cruise in 5 days. When we got the high PSA test we decided - lets just do the biopsy before our vacation so it's done & we won't have to worry about it.

Now, I feel like I'm worried about everything.

I'm trying to find out as much as I can before the appointment ~ my husband said - "lets just do what they recommend." Heavy sigh . . . .

I'm not sure I like any of the 3 choices . . . .I wish there was a 4th option!!

Thanks!!
