Much Obliged; to Everyone for great advice prior to operation. Results: Age 69, PSA 5.7, Gleeson 3+4=7, clinical stage T2b, complications.......former fractured pelvis. Turned down for laproscopic due to scar tisssue however, thanx to advice here, I found a sympathetic
open surgeon who agreed to do it. Operation Aug 5th.. Home Aug 7th. Catheter out Aug 13th. Post op. results: negative margins, 5-10% concentration, 48 grams weight, T2C stage, Gleeson 3+4=7, PSA 0.01. Doctor says he had hell getting it out amidst scar tissue but he obviously was good and "got 'er done". My gratitiude to him is immense. I'm still moderately incontinent but notice regular improvement and predict pratically dry sometime around in Oct .
Question: Does anyone have advice re: post operative constipation? I can't seem to find a stool softener that works reliably. Enema works good but wonder if I can somehow overuse this method, plus do not like to have to rely on this.
Thanks again to all for past tips and please note that I highly recommend placing confidence in experienced open surgeon.
