Greetings, Zimmer. Welcome to the club no one wants to be a part of. You are getting some good advice here. I would simply reinforce a few of the points.
1. As hard as it is to do - don't panic. You have lots of time. Take this time to do a lot of research and to get your slides read by a second lab doc. Even if you could get treatment immediately, most doc's want you to have 6 weeks to 2 months after the biopsy for the prostate to heal before they will do anything so you have some time.
2. Look at all the options. I chose surgery and I believe it was the right choice for me. That being said, there are other good options that are the right choice for a lot of people. Do the research on all of them and make your decision. There is not one right decision for everybody - but there is a right decision for every individual. Make your decision and then don't look back - just begin preparing for successful treatment.
3. Rather than doing kegels, my doc said each time you urinate stop the stream at least 5 times between now and the time you begin your treatment. In reality that is virtually the same as a kegel but you know you are doing exactly what you need to do. I had six weeks from diagnosis to treatment and it certainly worked for me. After my catheter came out I did the same thing for a few days and was pretty much dry.
4. You are among friends. Please feel free to let us know how things are going and to ask questions. One of the most valuable services this group provides is to share our experiences with those that are just beginning. Look forward to hearing from you again soon. David
