My new radiation oncologist doctor also through this out, whatever you are labeled with a Gleason number, treat it and act as though it were one number higher. He agreed with me, that a lot of Gleason 7 patients down play the seriousness of their situation, and that he thought Gleason 7's should never watch and wait, and that that 7 can qucikly become 8s and higher, even over a few weeks or months.
Romeo, the Sudafed is an antihistimine, same thing you could use if you were allergic to insect stings, helps the prolonged errection to ebb off and return to normal side. The guys that have had to go to the ER with mega hours long boners don't seem to have a good time.
Think you have gotten some excellent advice here about
the injections. Good luck.
