I am about 7 months Post-op and on Bi-mix injections.  They are working quite well but I have noticed a slight curvature which concerns me.  I do not notice the same curvature with the VED and rings. I am afraid that it will get worse over time.  I stopped the injections temporarily until I see my Uro.  From what I read, there is really no cure for it.  Anyone out there with a similar experience that can possibly shed a little light on the subject?

There is a short chat string on this site that started on 6/27/08. Not sure if the info there will help. We seem to be all over the place. Boy, that kcragman guy was such a downer back then!

Good luck,

March 2006: PSA 2.5

Dec 2007: PSA taken for insurance application. I did not see the results until late Jan '08 - after I was rejected. Their lab said PSA 4.5. PSA again in Feb '08: 3.7.

March 2008: Biopsy. Gleason 7 (4+3) 12 cores taken. 5 on the left side were cancerous and the 6th did not look good.

May 5, 2008: Da Vinci robotic laparoscopy at GW Hospital, Washington DC.

Post op: Gleason 9 (4+5). 15% of prostate involved. Stage: pT3a. Negative margins. Lymph nodes and associated glands all appear to be cancer free.
