I just noticed (only took me a month to see it) the links thread tonight and read about 30 of them....very useful stuff.
Was particularly interesting to read posts about issues some of the regular posters here were having 6 months or a year ago that apparently are no longer issues for them......and reassuring as well.

Danman Bob
Age 57
Nerve-sparing, open prostate surgery November 13, 2007
Gleason score 9, PSA 14
Biopsy result - 9 of 12 sticks showed cancer
Despite high Gleason score, cancer was confined to the prostate
Possible post-surgery radiation therapy...decision likely in late April 2008, depending upon PSA at that time
Unrelated surgery January 2008 delayed incontinence recovery, which is now showing good signs of improvement (fraction of a pad a day as of March 2008)
Began using Viagra 3 times a week December 2007 to stimulate blood flow
Began using Osbon Erec-Aid Esteem manual pump for therapy mid-February 2008
Will probably begin using bimix injections in addition to Viagra and pump in May 2008

My surgery was on May 30 2007. Since the surgery, I am 99.9 percent leak free with the occasional leak with some exertion, stooping over and putting pressure on the old bladder when it is full. I still have some urgency but deal with that pretty well. Ed is getting better too. Not where it was before surgery but getting better. And my PSA's have all been zero.

age at dx 54 now 55
psa at dx 4.3
