Hey Dadid,
I won't be there tonight so I'll just say "Good Luck! " now.
Let's hope this is the one!

We will take care of the two "prisoners" for you on Saturday. They certainly deserve it.

May your plumbing work to specifications.

Cajun:
 
I'll be glad to jump in to bait David one more time!!
 
Actually, we are going to the movies tonight to see The Town.
 
My daughter was involved in it, so we BETTER go see it.
 
Hopefully, I'll still be back in time to at least say hello.
 
David, if not, what else can I say but good luck. The time has come and hopefully you'll be saying that you should have done it sooner (or something like that)!

Up at the top of the page, in the second blue bar, see the word "chat"? Just click it, choose prostate, sign in, write your stuff in the small box near the bottom...You can choose a color to make your posts distinctive..

-Nov/Dec 07, March 08 and Dec 08: Severe perineum pain . Septra/Bactrim for 8 months for diagnosed prostatitis.
-PSA start of 2008: 5.3..... PSA June of 2008: 7.3
-14 DRE all benign or nothing felt
-TRUS Biopsy Nov 08: 5 of 8 cores positive GS 3+3 or 6. 30-65%. Perineural invasion.
-General Health: pretty good, 5' 10", 180 lbs, slim.
-Open RP surgery: May 09 both nerve bundles spared. Bilateral lymph node dissection performed. Discharged 48 hours after surgery.
-Post Surgery Pathology: pT3a N0 MX, extraprostatic extension (EPE), stage III prostate cancer, lymph nodes clear, seminal vesicles clear, Gleason upraded to 3+4 GS 7. EPE within surgical margins. Other than prostate and EPE, all tissue removed negative for cancer involvement.
-Bladder control within 48 hours of catheter removal
-ED ongoing but improving. ED oral meds didn't do much initially. TRIMIX was working very well. Initial dose of 0.1 mL too much. Had priapism at 0.075 mL that ended up in a humiliating ER visit. Doses recently after 50% dilution by Uro about 0.025 mL or less. Don't use Trimix anymore...I'm too sensitive to it, even at very low doses and the Alprostadil is pretty consistent in causing erection pain...had a few episodes of 3+ hour wood with pain.
-Levitra now starting to work at low doses of 5 mG to 10 mG. Sometimes the side effects like stuffy nose aren't fun...sometimes OK.
-Was supposed to see ED doc last week, but due to his schedule, will now be late August. Will discuss bimix with him.
