Thanks for the response. I do try and resrict fluid intake after about
7-8pm. I am not a big drinker of coffee or alcohol, (drink cranberry juice ) although I have found that a glass of wine or a beer will make a differance, and I do not take any medicines that might influance sleep patterns. During the day I usually have to pee about
every 3-4 hours and I suppose this is affecting the night time patterns. Yes a good idea to set an alarm and I had thought of this. Stomach muscles still seem tight, but I expect they will eventually ease with time. Weather in my part of the UK is not very good with wind and rain at the moment.
Diagnosed February 2009. Gleason 6, Psa 7.2, 12 core biopsy, and then Mri scan, which showed organ specific.
DaVinci at Addenbrookes, Cambridge, England 18th May 2009. Nerves removed one side.
Catheter in for 8 days, no pain, no post op problems apart from an infection, cleared with antibiotics.
Some aching around the penis, which still occurs.
6 week psa 0.1, post op pathology all good, confirming pre op tests. Ed a problem, no treatment as yet.
Light ladies pad during the day, just to control a slight dampness and a Tena for men pad at night for occassional leakage.
Awaiting 3 month consultation at the moment.
