this for a variation ...
On nights I have an orgasm I have no leakage before, during, or immediately afterwards. But sometimes - not always - when I wake up a few hours later, I have leaked a few drops. [Actually, if I didn't know better, I would swear that it is semen, not urine. Just me losing my grip on reality, I guess ....]
Anyway, on other nights, never a drop.
I don't have a partner, so I've just ignored it. Hopefully it will go away in time. It's never a big leak. Don't know what I'd do if I ever do have a partner again, but that is so unlikely it's not worth spending time thinking about.
No family history of PC. PSA reading in 2000 was around 3.0 . Annual PSA readings gradually rose; no one said anything to me until my PSA reached 4.0 in September 2007, at which point my internist advised me to see a urologist.
Urologist advised a repeat PSA reading in six months = 4.0 . Diagnosed May 2008 at age 56 as a result of 12 core biopsy. Biopsy report by Bostwick Laboratories = Gleason 3 + 3.
Interviewed two urologists - the one who did the biopsy and another - the latter had the biopsy slides re-examined = Gleason 3 + 3.
Then went to M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston in July 2008 and met with a urologist and a radiologist. Biopsy slides re-examined yet again, this time by MDA's internal pathology department = Gleason 3 + 4.
Chose da Vinci surgery over proton beam therapy; surgery performed at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center on August 15, 2008. Post-operative pathology report = four tumors, carcinoma contained in prostate, clean (negative) margins, lymph nodes clear, seminal vesicles clear. Gleason = 4 + 3.
Minor temporary incontinence; current extent of ED uncertain due to lack of sexual partner; refused treatments for ED as being pointless under the circumstances.
November 2008 = <0.1 ["undetectable"]
June 2009 = <0.1
December 2009 = <0.1
