It's open season for my health insurance and I want to pick one that works with a good implant doctor. Does anyone have experience with Dr. Steven K. Wilson? He is located near me, and I see his name pop up a lot in implant research papers.

Thanks

At Diagnosis of PCa, had Gleason 9 and normal PSA

Radical Prostatectomy on July 7th, 2010 by Dr. Fagin using daVinci

25% to 50% nerves spared on left, 100% spared on right.

Continent from day one.

Pathology showed postive margins and extension beyond gland, including seminal vesicals and lymph nodes. Stage upgraded to T3b.

JULIOS - why an implant doctor? - if you are dealing with ED (you state most of nerves spared)- it takes time to get things working again - it is not like a light switch - and you are continent... -reminder - it is only 12 weeks since your surgery - you are still healing ...

sincere hugs

Thanks for the kind reply. You are right. But my radiation oncologist tells me my recovery will forever freeze at the level it's at when I start radiation, in about two weeks. I'm only 50% recovered. And injections won't work forever.

I'm in no hurry, really. I just want to have the right insurance in case I need it. Planning ahead.

Best wishes.
