Here is an update for anyone going down the same road as I. Had a RP on Nov 3rd. Good results on the pathology. Over Christmas I was getting into trouble with poor urine flow and ended up with emergency surgery on Jan 3rd to
open my blocked bladder. I thought that would be the end of my troubles but I am now going down the same road again. Things are really slowing up. Went to see my urologist today. I am now booked for a cystoscopy on March 9th to dialate the
opening from the bladder and
open any strictures. Urologist says a small percentage of patients are like me with repeated problems. He says to wait and see the results of this procedure. I may have to be taught to insert a catheter on my own so I can self dialate.
Anyone else had a cystoscopy? What were the after effects, if any?
On active surveillance for 18 months then had first follow up biopsy
Sept 1/10 - biopsy - 3 cores positive 2 @ G6 (20% & 50%) & 1 @ G7 (70%)
RP surgery booked for Nov 3/10.
