You might get some variation of the continence. For me it varied for a few weeks because, as I was told, you still have some swelling in that area. When it changes so will the control, but it was perfectly tolerable for me. You will likely receive a recommendation for radiation. Don't worry about
it if you do. It was a breeze for me. I doubt you will be recommended to take on hormone therapy as yet. Unless you PSA fails to drop out that may change, but I believe it will and you have my prayers that it does. God Bless you and good luck on that first PSA.
