Paul - you know whilst they are 'watching and waiting' - how often do they check it hasn't morphed and spread, by doing another MRI scan? (and if they don't do it, how will they and you know that it hasn't?)  I'm asking purely because I don't know, and wondered - not for any other reason.

Kathy,  I hope the result of your husband's ultrasound is clear.  I assume you will get the results some time this week?

The  PSA number may not be helpful as your husband had a TURP procedure but you could ask the urologist for the exact figure.  This website explains the PSA test: http://www.pctrf.org/prostate-specific-antigen-psa/

 
Diabetes Type2 diagnosed March 2014.  Treated by diet only.  HbA1c 60 on diagnosis, 52 in June 2014, 50 October 2014, 44 December 2014, 48 May 2015, 50 Sep 2015, 53 Jan 2016, 50 Oct 2016, 56 Feb 2017, 50 Jun 2017. 50 Aug 2017.  Pacemaker fitted 2008.

When I get old I don't want people thinking
                      "What a sweet little old lady"........
                             I want 'em saying
                    "Oh Crap! Whats she up to now ?"

Pauline - Thank you for the website link.  It explains a lot more than the first Urologist ever thought of doing.  Yes, my husband will be seeing his present Urologist this Friday, May 26.  He is a bit nervous as I am too.  We're hoping for an 'all clear'.

I went with my husband to his appointment with the Urologist today.  The Urologist studied the images taken by the ultrasound and said that it is a harmless condition requiring no further treatment, unless the pain that he had earlier returns.  It was his opinion that a man should have the PSA at least once every year or two as long as the psa numbers are not 'out of range'.  Both of us left the office very much relieved and grateful for good news.

Thank you for your good wishes and taking time to post them.  When we left the doctor's office, my hubby turned to me and said "Well, now we can sleep better tonight because I was worried last night that I would get bad news today."  We are truly blessed.
