I've been lurking for quite a while, It is incredible the amount of knowledge and support that is shared here. In today's world of medicine, I have found it very difficult to get real information about our disease. It is because of this forum and the dedicated people here that I have been able to educate myself. It is 7 weeks today since Dr. Tully in Birmingham did the deed. They are tremendous! I am pretty much continent with only a few drops here and there. I had non-nerve sparing so ED is real issue. I did however have some "decent flow" with pills and agressive therapy from my wife. My local urologist was "disappointed" with my psa .039 a month after surgery. I thought it was pretty encouraging. He thought it should have been almost zero. Anyway, Dr. Tully and Dr Cardinale (radiology/oncologist) both strongly recommend igrt because of the gleason, amount of cancer, and the seminal vesicle invasion. That begins 11-15. I hope the side-effects will be minimal.
Anyway, if there is any way I can help anyone here... just ask.
Thanks to everyone for being a part of this forum!
