Hi Pete our friend,
This is really good news re your health. You know, we were only one month behind you (in front of you??), and we really appreciate your support to us always. We also got the same news recently, with 3 clear PSA's and one good (very good) appointment with Surgeon 13 months after - doing OK with the ED with oral meds only. No spontenaity exactly but we are lucky to have some result. Pete, my friend, you have to fight the depression if you experience that, which is also a feature of both of us ( me and hubby but not to a massive degree - coming good now..) We found that resuming past (social) enjoyable activities helpful as we have realised we put our life on hold for past 13 months. Recently we went indoor bowling with our son. Even that was good! I can't wait to do it again.
Just posting to say hello really Pete... Hope this (our progress) is helpful. We are lucky to avoid injections with regard to ED, but I think overall, it is a thing to be worked through and battled personally. We found past threads here helpful (particularly the depression topics)- as I think we are talking about a degree about reactive depression (grief/adaptation), and the only reason I am saying any of this, is because, we seem to be experiencing it too. Anyway, as I said, the best thing is about your health, and stay in touch. cheeers,
