That is some scary stuff. Glad to hear your husband is doing better, really glad to hear the color doppler did not find PCa. I've been watching
this forum to see how the doppler biopsy went for you. I've had to fly down to Seattle for both my biopsies, I've always thought do I want to fly home right after or stay a day just to be sure things are okay? I've stayed overnight both times. I went sepsis when I had a UTI a couple of years ago, in the hospital 5 days too; don't want to repeat that again.
That's good info about fPSA and an enlarged prostate. Dr. Lee's thoughts on inflammation and letting the prostate heal make sense to me. I'll get the results of my latest PSA test on Monday, scheduled to see the urologist on Dec 4. If my PSA stays elevated, I think I'm going to get an appt with Dr. Bahn for a Color Doppler ultrasound. I'd just like to know what is going on, whatever it may be.
Thanks again for your post. Wishing you the best, sounds like that doppler ultrasound gave you some peace in the long run.
