Unhappy Husband just diagnosed...

I just found this board while trying to research more info about PC.

My husband is 68. He had a Gleason score of 9 with 12 out of 12 cores positive for cancer. The cancer is Stage 2 T2cMo. His bone scan was clear.
Otherwise my husband is in good health, slightly elevated blood pressure, non smoker, active & pretty fit for age 68.

The doctor stressed to us that his cancer is very aggressive. He said he'd only had 2 other cases in 15 yrs with numbers this high. He said there is 50%chance that it has spread to the seminal vesicles & other tissues.

A Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy with Pelvic Lymphnode Disection is scheduled for March 9th the soonest date available.

We understand what we've been told but we're still reeling from this information. We are concerned about the possible spread of the cancer to bladder or bowel. Any comments welcome...
