Thanks very much for this, but that symptom seems to be clearing up as of the last week or two. It continued after I quit Tamsulosin, so it seems it was a groin pull or sciatica from vigorous tennis at about the same time as my diagnosis. I have since had a negative CT scan, in addition to the negative bone scan.
Robotic scheduled April 11. Doc says OK to wait that long, worries me a bit. Diagnosis was December. He wants 3 months healing from biopsy, says another month + not a problem.
He also radiates confidence and states that I have a 90-95% chance of a trifecta and that the slides being re-read will reveal a 3+4 or a 3+3. He has done over 4,000 RP's, more than anyone else in the world apparently.
Other two docs I consulted were not nearly so optimistic, but I have drunk the Koolaid and now hope for the best.
Thanks again for your help.
This is out of my area, but I found a publication reference you might want to check:
