Have not posted in a while and feel selfish that I had not kept in touch as I received a lot of support here when I was going through some tough times. cry It has now been over 2 1/2 years and I am still in the 0 club but I still suffer from Incontinence to a minor degree down to one panty liner a day and that usually at night. My Doctor suggested I look into the sling but I've had enough surgery for awhile. I have developed an itching in the scrotum that is driving me crazy and powder or butt paste aren't doing much good. I think its being caused by the pad, or dampness.

My unprofessional diagnosis (if the itching is on the skin), is you have developed a fungal infection from the dampness.

Your doctor possibly has a stronger medication he can prescribe that is better than what you can buy over the counter.

I once had a fungal infection on my neck and chest. I eventually went to the doctor after trying tinactin and other anti-fungals and I got a prescription for some liquid and in about a week it was gone forever.

Good luck

Here are some of my stats:
Father diagnosed with PC at age 72 - wasn't contained to prostate when found in 1992.
My PSA rose from 3.2 to 5.1 over the course of 1.5 years with Free PSA at 25% for the last two tests.
DRE showed no evidence of tumor but Uro thought my prostate was a little large for someone my age
PCa diagnosed 4/6/10 after biopsy on 4/1/10
1 out of 12 biopsy samples was positive with 5% of biopsy sample cancerous
Gleason 3+4
Da Vinci surgery on 6/1/10
Pathology report shows cancer confined to prostate and all other tissue clean

Change the pad more often and at night - sleep on top of a bath towel in the buff. Give big jim and the twins some fresh air.
