All the arrangements have been made.  I will be having the corrective surgery to the bladder neck area done next week, Tuesday the 19th at 1130.  I go to pre-op this Thursday afternoon to get that out of the way.  They are alllowing a two hour window, but surgeon is hoping to be done in an hour to hour and fifteen minutes.  Really won't know till he gets up inside me again.
Good thing, I will be resting the the next world while all this is going on, hoping he does his magic this time, and that it will be a perm fix.
 
There is a risk of picking up incontinence problems where there are none now, but that risk has to be taken, he's well aware of that.
 
I don't look forward to another surgery, this will be my 4th beyond my open RP, but I look forward to having it work and finally freeing me out of this hellish world of longterm catheter use.

Purgatory,

I had one colon operation before my RP and four afterwards - a total of six operations in nine months.

Just lie back and pretend you're on the beach in Barbados.  That's what I did.  When the doctor asked me a question pre-op, I told him to step aside, he was blocking my sun.  cool

Zen9


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. 
PSA readings: 
November 2008 = <0.1 ["undetectable"]
June 2009 = <0.1   
December 2009 = <0.1

Thank you Ralph, hope the 4th time is the charm in this matter.

Thanks, Magaboo, was so happy to hear about your good number today, hope it stays that way for you.

Rob, thanks, I would be more than happy to pass the catheter baton off to someone else, would even give up all the prizes and trophys, lol

mal, thanks, my friend. Support noted.

carebear, thanks, yeah, SC is in Eastern Time, one hour ahead of you

David/CPA - thanks, brother. Still got a rite of passage and some more healing time ahead, but feel better that progress at least is about to start. Won't be easy at first, but least it will be in the right direction.

thanks, my good friend Sonny, not sure it would make an interesting read to anyone outside our world. I will be glad to put it in my distant memeory files if I can ever get through it all. My best to Lynn, hugs.

Hi David,

I've been offline for a bit after my Mom passed away in December and have been preparing for and attending her memorial services.

I was really glad to log on and see that your corrective surgery has been scheduled following RT.

May you have the very best results, my friend!

Kind regards to all of you on the forum as we all continue to fight "the good fight."

All the best,

Barry

Well David, good luck. I hope they can get this right. Your story is like one gentleman I know here in Las Vegas who just has had one heck of a time with his surgery and scarring. He finally gave in and started self catheterization and has been doing it for a couple years. I'd hate to see you down that road, so you have my prayers for good results...
