I only found this Forum a short time ago. I find the posts very informational.
I thought I might be able to help somebody with my story.
I had PSA done in 2002. My count was .07 The doctor said I could either have surgery and have 'it' removed, or have radiation pellets (whatever that was) I just said I want 'it' out.
After five years of testing every six months, the results varied from .00 to .02
Now for thee years I have been having the tests once a year, and all have been zero.
It will be eight years in June, and the doctor said 'all clear' that was this week.
I had a little trouble with incontinence for the first five years, one pad a day, but then the insurance cleared paying for 'the sling' they wouldn't pay for it while it was experimental, so I waited. Everything is now dry. ED was the next thing, I tried all the pills and a pump, but nothing workd for me, so my doctor suggested injections. It has been eight years.
I now use Bi Mix, 3.5cc and evrything is wonderful. By the way, I am 76 years young and love every day.
I didn't mean to go on, but I thought I might be able to help somebody who may be in the same position as I was. I hope I did.
