Cancer: Prostate board


Hi Ed,

I agree with your family doctor! Go to Johns Hopkins or someone who does this surgery all the time. Get Patrick Walsh's book Surviving Prostate Cancer!

DO NOT rush into this to keep a date with destiny. If you read enough posts on this board, you will see that many recommend going to a specialist. My local uro performed about 12 a year. I went to Baltimore to Dr. Carter who performs 5 a week.

The initial focus is to terminate the cancer. However, if you are not careful, the cancer may survive and the lingering incontinence and/or impotence can be devistating!

A previous post of mine tells a story of a friend who went locally. A year later the cancer was back, he was incontinent and forget erections!

THINK LONG TERM !

I was undergoing the same situation you're in two years ago. Had RRP on June 16, 2003, and still think it was the right decision. I wore a pad for a good while (several months), and then one night, I forgot to wear one and didn't have any leaks, so I decided I could make it without a pad, and did. Even now, I'll have a couple of "droplets" on occasion, but that might be happening even if I'd never had surgery. (I'll be 68 next month.) Also, my uro didn't even want me to consider viagra, levitra or cialis until 5 months later. I didn't let "it" rest in the meanwhile, however. I'm still being patient...but not as patient as Dr. Walsh suggests. Went to a different uro this week and he gave me a prescription for Muse. I've ordered the product and hope to have it early next week. It ain't cheap, but it still may be the best buy I've made in a while!! Congrats from me, too, on your great PSA. "Hang in." Things will get much better!
