2 weeks is kind of soon. At 2 weeks my cath was only out 2 days and not much control at all. Each week you will see an improvement

At 3 months I had 100 percent control

Thanks to all for not only the warm welcome but the many many months of informative reading and inspiration

Everyone's insight and dead on reporting of each milestone made the process ( so far) much more tolerable

Glad you decided to join our ranks. Wow, you sure had a low psa number to have contracted PC, one of the lower one's I have seen here. Hope you continue to recovery well.

Welcome Mr Gimpy,

You are not much different than my experience. I probably would have been the same as you last year.  I hope that your followup stats are going well.

Hi Pergatory,

I was surprised myself with a PSA of 1.9 that it was serious

But, I did have 2 ominous symptoms that led to the biopsy.

1) I was not able to hold off going to the bathroom for more than a 2-3 hr period, on most days I urinated 12-15 times, including waking up at least 2x nightly to go. The stream was a trickle at best

2) Three Dr's performed a DRE and all felt a lump on the prostate

Maybe of some significance was that 3 other family member also has PC
