I don't know about
that but I had a freind who had 3 biopsies, then he had a hard time in surgery becasue fo all the scar tissue. That to me is one of the problems with active survellince, it is just not a good idea to keep jabbing your prostrate.
Dx'ed 5/08 one core 2% out of 12 3+3 gleason
DREs all negative
PSA was in the 3-4 range then jumped to 7
I have the enlarged prostate, on the order of 100cc. After taking Avodart for 3 months my
PSA was cut in half.
I did Active S for a year but concluded that I didn't want a life
of biopsies and Uro meetings.
DaVinci on 6/24/09 UCI Med Center Dr Ahlering, long surgery based on size and location
Final was 5% one side all clear, but had a huge 90 grm prostate
Now we work on pee control, ok at night but sitting is a big problem.
