Neil, I don;t know where he is performing the procedure. Last time I heard, it was Cyprus. Yes, I watched my procedure on the monitor and Dr G explained each step.

Thanks for the information on the PSa. I'm watching the numbers and have the prostate doubling app. At present trend is downward. Perhaps I should go for a volume check. Had a biopsy years ago before I had the procedure and all was ok but it was an uncomfy thing. I've heard now that there is a urine test now that detects prostate cancer and will go for that rather than the biopsy.

Hi Andy,

There is a new urine test for prostate cancer called SelectMDx developed in Belgium. The urine is collected after a standard DRE test. It looks for mRNA associated with aggressive prostate cancers. I just had it and my results were 14% for aggressive cancer and 34% for a blind needle biopsy. That is goo for a 220gm prostate! All that matters for us is clinically significant prostate cancer - not microscopic cells picked up by a random needle biopsy. Here is a link to their site:

Could you tell me how quickly after your GG procedure 5 years ago you started to notice an improvement in your peeing? Was it a gradual improvement over many months or was it right away after the procedure compared to the night before?

I wonder why new guys who had GG stopped contributing to this site. There were 18 over a period of 3 years that kept coming on board here and then it suddenly stopped about a year ago. Do you think they went over to another site?
All the best
(p.s. my name at the old Inspire site was "peealot" or as my wife calls me "Sir Peealot" )

I remember you well now. Sir Peealot.....

Thanks for the info and link.

Improvement although very slight, was immediate. However further improvements took 3 - 4 years and I must say, there are times - a few days each - where I think I'm regressing, however, after that period, there appears to be an improvement. So, it's not an overnight cure.

I underwent GG procedure in Laniado Hospital, Netanya, Israel. It was on June 18th 2017. Procedure was made by dr Goren, (dr Gat was present as well). Both examination before and after was made by dr Gat in his office.

It's now been over six full years since I had my GG procedure on 30 May 2011. I'm typically pretty punctual posting updates, but this year I got distracted. Sorry for the 3-month delay, but there was honestly nothing much different that would spur me to write.

Nightly visits to the washroom remain at about one a night. Daytime visits are at least two hours apart but can be as long as six hours if I don't drink anything. My prostate, 51 grams before the procedure, shrunk to under 25 grams a year later. It has maintained that size at least through last Summer, when I last had it measured.

The only change in the past year is a 40%+ increase in my low testosterone levels since late 2015. This increase was confirmed by a repeat measurement, so I believe it to be a real improvement not just a fluke. I don't think the increase was a delayed result of the GG procedure. Rather, I think it was the natural result of losing 30+ pounds. Regardless, it's nice.

I'll update next year, or sooner if there are sudden big changes.

Neil: I will be in Toronto at the end of this month. Private message me if you want to meet for moral support while I'm in your neck of the woods. I'm sorry that your PAE didn't work--I have read a lot of good reviews about that procedure.
