yeah  

I am thrilled that my 90 day PSA was less then .01, which was what it was for the 30 day PSA.  I no longer have any leakage, except for sometimes during orgasm.  Now I just have to improve the ED.  I am using the Erecaid vavume pump, but just got a perscription for Tri Mx, and it seems to work good, but the best thing is that it seems to have started me being able to get almost a natural erection the day after I take the shot.  I seem to be improving over time.  Maybe the next few months will hold the resolution for my ED.

 

Anyway, I thought some of you may want to hear about my progress.

Congratulations all around!!!

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
