I just wanted to tell everyone thank you! Without this forum I would have been lost. Since my biopsy in July 2010 I have had robotic surgery and am now just past 8 weeks. It still is uncomfortable when I urinate but keeps getting better. Also the muscles in my buttocks hurt alot on and off. Almost any question I have has been answered by one of you in this forum and it has made my battle much easier. My cancer had gone into my left seminal vesicle but my doctor thinks he removed it all. My first PSA 11/05/2010 came back <.1  which he said was good news, we'll see.

welcome, I am about a month behind you and my butt hurts too. I've been told it is normal (and not my wifes fault).
Good luck on your journey.

I am 16 months post-op, and I am as good as I was before. Of course, I am approaching dirt in age. It is fun to get up in the AM with the same aches and pains that I had before the PC.
