Good luck with your procedure. I still wish that I could have had BT. I have two close friends that had BT the same time as my surgery. One had some significant urinary and bowel problems during the first year and the other had no problems at all. They both claim to have no erectile problems, though I know that guys tend to lie about that. Maybe even some on this forum
BT was my first choice and I still think that I should have gone that path. However three urologists insisted that my Gleason 8 cancer needed to be removed with surgery. My friends both had Gleason 6 diagnosis. I now have complete erectile failure. I am only able to have erectile success with bimix injections.
We are all three approaching four years post treatment with no reoccurence. That is the good thing.
