Just got back from Doctor's, psa still undetectable!! 15 months since surgery and my 5th PSA test < 0.1. So my membership has been renewed for another six months!
Said thats important issue #1, how bout the #2 with going to bathroom. Tell I him i go much more since surgery where I dont have has much urine but go, and no pads...only leakage is when i cough or sneeze real hard or when I have a couple of beers... But I told him go much more then pre-surgery and go sometimes then have to feel like going 5 minutes later and not much comes.. and wake up just once a night to go but only once.... said OK normal...
Asked me about the ED, told him the injections work but had bad experience where i hit a vein once and got a bruise that scared the begeezees out of me...So I stopped and continued with the oral med's which help but dont get the job completly done. He told me wants me to continue with injections twice a week said it will stretch it which it needs and will greatly help where I shouldnt need to do just short term since I am getting blood flow now without it.... Easy for him to say, the pain doesnt bother me just the whole needle thing freaks me out....
So Tip Your Glass Tonight, I will be!!!
