If for no other reason, I would send him data as a common courtesy, assuming of course you have any kind of relationship with him/her.
This speaks to another issue/question that we deal with.... who’s your quarterback? I recall asking my Uro/Surgeon , when I first visited with him, what happens after the surgery? He said, you see me, I’ll be your quarterback, I’ll be your Urologist, and help you through any issues, after the surgery, and beyond.
The truth is, in this disease, at least for the guys here, we are our own quarterback. There is not one doctor that oversees our PC treatment, maybe some of us talk to our PC , but they know less then many of us here.
So because of the lack of black and white for follow up treatment if needed, we are in charge.
That’s a good enough reason though, IMO, to keep the primary treating doc informed along the way. You never know when you may want to consult him/her
I am not a doctor, just another guy without a prostate
