Further on from my post a few weeks ago 'Pain in the butt', that's still there but not as bad, I had my first PSA test today three months after surgery.
I had been warned that there was a good chance some cells were left in the margins.
Today's reading was 0.8 that I was told was to be expected, but not to worry simply be back in 3 months to see where PSA is at that stage.
If it's stable then back in another 3 months, if not then 'treatment' can be discussed......ie. injections perhaps or castration could be an option.
I'm interested in hearing some views here re. treatments.
ED is still a problem and was discussed quite
openly, and it was suggested I could if I wish try Viagra that's good for blood flow but it may not help.
It was suggested 12 months down the track there may be some natural erection, but at close to 70yo don't count on it. I did have strong erections before surgery.
At least I'm 100% continent and that is sure something to be thankful for.Subject added for archiving and to keep threads seperate
