I am a low 'T' guy too. Can anybody point to anything authoritative for or against the 'gasoline on a fire' assumption?
This moment, here and now, is nothing less than the totality of existence.
I can't control my life, but I can influence this moment.
PSAs 1.6, 1.8, 2.0 at yearly intervals
Mild DRE finding (hindsight unrelated) lead to biopsy
3/08 1st biopsy, 18 core. Pathologist 1, HPIN and ASAP, 0.5mm 1 core. Pathologist 2, carcinoma
7/08 2nd biopsy, 16 core. Pathologist 1, 1 core carcinoma. Pathologist 3, 3 cores carcinoma
Urologist retired. Referred to another Dr in same practice, not experienced enough.
Robotic da Vinci performed 12/22/08, Univ of Washington Med Center, Dr. William Ellis. 6 hr procedure. Both nerves spared.
Catheter out 12/31/08.
Final path report:
79 g prostate gland
1.5 cm^3 cancerous (<5%), bilateral, T2c, Gleason 3+4
Margins clear, seminal vessels clear, 14 lymph nodes negative
Dry immediately after catheter out.
ED - some nocturnal erections even with catheter.
1st orgasm at two week mark. 50% erect, BJ w/o the mustard.
Needs more stimulation, orgasm ok, but my 'card deck' went into 52 card pickup mode, need to reprogram what this is for.
