It has been a while since I have posted but I remember what a great relief this site was to me when diagnosed. I had laproscopic prostatectomy in June of 2007 and then 38 radiation treatments 5 months later because one of my margins was not clear. Other than the usual problems that go along with surgery and radiation (slight incontenance - 1 pad a day just in case) and irregularity constantly, I have had no issues until the last month or so. I noticed blood in my urine a little over a month ago on a single occassion, but blew it off as being caused by strain etc. then a second time a week later. Since then I have noticed it about twice a week. I am going to call the doctor tomorrow, but was curious if others had had this issue. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
