Noticed in your signature that your husband is taking "viagra up to 100 a day". You may check into the side effects of Viagra, but I believe the "flushing feeling" as you describe it may be a result of the Viagra and have nothing at all to do with his overall stress, etc.
If that is the case, Levitra and Cialis are other options.
Hopefully it will be nothing more serious than that.
42 yo. now
5/07 PSA 4.65 at routine physical
6/07 biopsy positive for cancer...Gleason 3+4...diagnosed at 41 y.o.
6/07-9/07 manic research and interviews with physicians across the country in search of the "right" decision. I went to Mass General in Boston, Loma Linda, University of Chicago and Northwestern.
9/17/07 - Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy Surgery at Northwestern Memorial in Chicago by Dr. William Catalona. Thankful the father of the PSA test was right here in Chicago.
Post op pathology was Gleason 3+4 with negative margins, no seminal vesicale involvement, no lymphatic or vascular invasion, bladder and urethral free and tumor volume was 5% of 27.3g.
9/27/07 - Catheter removal...let the games begin...
12/07 - Threw out the pads. I only had to use 1 pad per day for protection against minor drips.
I started Trimix 8 weeks after surgery with success.
I hope someday I won't need injections, but I hope more that my PSA stays at 0 forever.
