Ed, thanks for posting the link.

The webcast is still available; my wife & I have both watched it. If anyone is at ALL interested, you should watch it. Only part of the webcast is the operation, and that part is easy to watch, too.

I'm headed over to Durham this afternoon, and go to Duke's outpatient surgical center at 0600 for an 0715 operation. Dr. Webster is another of the surgeon's involved in the clinical trials for the AdVance Male Sling, and will be doing mine.

The comments in the webcast are very encouraging; my biggest worry lately is what if this *doesn't* work. The webcast went a long way toward reducing that fear.

My leakage amount is a little bit under 100ml/day, as calculated with a locally weighted statistical smoothing algorithm. Can pictures be posted to this forum? (I haven't looked to see) If so, I'll post my chart


Ed ... I was *born* at Strong Memorial :-)
51 yrs old at diagnosis & surgery
Biopsy 6/20/2007, 2 of 10 cores positive, 9%, Gleason 3+3, PSA 2.5, up from 2.0 previous year.
DaVinci robotic at Duke Univ. Medical Center 10/3/2007 both nerves spared
post surgical PSA tests all < 0.1

SkyDaver,

Best of luck on the procedure!

What a coincidence that you were born at Strong. I'm a native of Brooklyn, but I've been in Rochester over 40 years.

I graph using a 7 day moving average. It's really not very useful as there's been no consistent improvement over time. I get good blips for each collagen, or for a couple of "lazy" days, but then back to "normal"

Let us know how you make out. There's lots of interest out there!

Ed
