I am a worried wife waiting with my husband for a follow up appointment following his biopsy 12 days ago. .
Long story short ...
Not many symptoms other than 2 days of a burning type feeling in urination as described by my husband .
Needing to get up to use the loo a bit more during the night .
A visit to the GP and a few tests later mid June & he gets a call at work from the GP to make an appointment to go back & see them . PSA level is 32.5 which she advised is very high & needed to do a referral to our hospital for examination & MRI scan .
June 29th & he sees urology department for a DRE
Doctor tells us she can feel something on the left side & called it a possible T2 lesion .She advised that she would like to book my husband in for a day case Bioppsy .
We then go on our prebooked holiday ... an anxious 10 days as MRI report not yet back
On return from holiday lots of Letters from the hospital
Results of MRI show a suspicious area on the left but that my husband 61 has a normal sized prostate for his age .
Another letter with date of the biopsy booked for June 29th & a follow up appointment with the consultant made for Tuesday 17th July .
So here we are are wondering what Tuesday will bring . The waiting is the worst part of all this for both of us .
We are particularly anxious about the urgency of the referral & the very high PSA
My brother & one of our friends have both been through prostate cancer both whom have since had their prostate removed . What worries us was both their reactions to my husbands PSA reading.
Are we right to be worried ? Any support or advice would be very welcomed . Thank you .
