Ok Blue I started a new thread.
Hi Blue,
Just had the results of Curtis' second PSA Tuesday and it was 0 again!!  He's tried all three erectial disfunction pills with no luck and the doctor mentioned the shots.  I didn't think Curtis would be interested in such a thing, but he said maybe later...so well see.  I don't think I'd want a shot in my tender parts!!!  tongue I'm not pushing him cause he has no interest in sex right now.  I've heard that the urge will come back....eventually so we'll wait and see.  I'm just glad that his PSA was nil again!!!  That's the most important thing.
How have you two been doing?

Hi Biker,
Your first one was 0?  The next one probably will be too.  It's great that they caught it early enough for you two.

Ellen & Curtis - What wonderful news for you both! And that makes it good news for everyone. It sounds like Curtis is right on track.

I'm sure if you ask most anyone who has been through this, the order of importance is :

1. PSA
2. Continence
3. Regaining sexual function

So it looks like you're well on the way to #3!

Wishing you all the best,
Susan

Blue,
I don't think you realize...or maybe you do....just how much you and the others have helped me over the last few months.  I'm sure you realized when I first came in that I was a basket case and needed all the help I could get.  Curtis seemed to take it much better than I did.  I was just scared to death that I was going to lose him and then my father getting worse with his prostate cancer and finally losing him on the 1st of February.  This year has got to improve!! sad
We're finally getting away for a few days Thursday going visiting friends in southern Idaho then into Nevada for a little gambling...Ah to get away and just relax!!! yeah
Anyway thanks again to everyone for being our friends and helping us so much over the last 7 months!!!!
