Has anyone had pelvis pain? My husband has had pelvis pain for the past two months.  I asked him to describe how he was feeling and he said it was like having the flu in his pelvis.  He looks really tired and pale.  Our next doctor’s appointment isn’t until June3rd.

H Bobs wife,
I had my open RP on June 2007 and 1 months post op now ,i had a nerve sparing operation, and sometimes after some sexual activity and taking Viagra i feel some pains in one side of the pelvis and i attribute it for my yet delicate nerves working to supply blood , my pain i minor and pases after a rest , i am sure that its differ from your husband , i would suggest to contact his Uro and check it out ...
Good Luck ...keep us posted

April 2007 PSA 8.4 for last 6 months biopsy shows PC 3+3=6
June 13 2007 Went for open RP with Dr. Christopher Johnson at St. Francis Hospital NY. with nerve sparing of both sides.
4 days later home for Fathers Day, and Catheter.
Removal of catheter 10 days later , incontinence next to nothing, no pads used from the get go.
1 month PSA next to not detected

ED is a longer battle:1 month out start using occasionally Cialis and 50MG Viagra to promote blood flow with no response for 6 months.
3 months and 6 months PSA not detected
ED 6 months mark starting with VED therapy and being more aggressive with meds , in addition taking Folgard supplement daily.
April 2008 10 month out and start seeing some serious improvements with ED while using Meds and VED , can achieve erections, Mid nights erections almost on a regular basis , and uncontrolled 90 % erections spontaneously.
1 year visit on June 13 2008 woohoooo!!!

I cannot offer any insight into the pain, but if it is bothering your hubby a lot, I suggest you call and schedule an appointment prior to the one already set for June 3. 
 
Best of luck to you.

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

Hi Bob's wife:  There are all kinds of weird aches and sensations post-op guys can get -- even two months after surgery.  The surgeon has to cut through muscle etc. to get where he needs to go and and I have been told that muscle can take a long time to heal.  Along with recovery from the incisions, some guys I've talked to had huge swelling in their testicles; others (like me) felt like their testicles weighed about 20 pounds for the first eight weeks or so.
I agree with DanMan -- bump that appointment with your physician to an earlier date than June.  Your husband should not be experiencing a large amount of pain after two months.  Maybe he's got an hernia??  Hernias are known to happen with greater frequency to guys who have undergone both robotic and open prostatectomies.  I had symptoms of hernia pain but it took a year until the dam burst, so to speak, when two good-sized lumps finally protruded through my abdomen.  I believe that's what was causing a lot of my post-op pelvic discomfort (not pain, just discomfort) some four or five months after my surgery. 
Be sure to check into the hernia possibility the next time you see your doc. And by all means, see him/her asap.
Best to ya,
Tom

Thanks for the reply, I guess I should have stated that his RP was in 2006.  His psa level has been rising and the doctor wants to see him on June 3rd for a follow up psa, and possible radiation and bone scan.  I did talk him into getting in touch with the doctor on Monday.  Thanks again Bob's wife
