Zeb, I had RRP in Oct of 06 and I have been almost fully incontinent since. HW will not let us give out our personal information here but "click" on KW and it should
open my profile where you will see my personal e-mail. Feel free to drop me a line and if you wish I will call on the phone and talk about
my treatments and outcomes. You may want to go back and read KW's Journey to see what all I have done and been through. Please do not get scared if you do. I am also looking at the AUS later this summer. I am also talking to a couple of guys that are in the process of gettting theirs done. They may be willing to talk too.
Good Luck to your relative!
