Hey, last week I went to a baseball game without "going." Along about the sixth inning my wife, remembering last year with three trips a game, asked if I needed to go, but I didn't. I didn't even make a pit stop before the drive home.

The moral here seems to be that improvement happens -- even if slowly. So for those of you who may be frustrated by slow progress, there is continuing hope.

P.S. No beer until I got home -- no reason to tempt fate.
Age at diagnosis 66, PSA 5.5
Biopsy 12/08 12 cores, 8 positive
Gleason 3+4=7
CAT scan, Bone scan 1/09 both negative.

Robotic surgery 03/03/09 Catheter Out 03/08/09
Pathology: Lymph nodes & Seminal vesicles negative
Margins positive, Capsular penetration extensive Gleason 4+3=7
6 weeks: 1 pad/day, 1 pad/night -- mostly dry at night.
10 weeks: no pad at night -- slight leakage day/1 pad.
3 mo. PSA 0.0 - now light pads
6 mo. PSA 0.00 -- 1 light pad/day
9 mo. PSA 0.00 -- 1 light pad/day ED remains
12 mo. PSA 0.00 -- still one light pad and ED
16 mo PSA 0.00 -- light pad just for security, ED still an issue

I can do the same --- just so long as the game is called in the second inning on account of rain.

Congratulations, Geezer.

I hope the home team won.
