Hello my friends. I have been away for a while and haven't posted. Just got my second PSA after my surgery 10/12/2006. First PSA was 0.01 Second is 0.02. They were from different labs. The doctor said he was happy with any PSA number in the tenths, just as long as it stayed 0.?? Zero Point any number it was ok. Anyway I think this is good news so far. Incontinence is not an issue anymore I can lift my 75 pound amplifier with no leaks drips or any problem. Sexual funtion is coming along. No real erection without using the vacurect pump and viagra. With the help of the pump I can have intercourse whenever I feel like it. So, it seems things are a lot better for me now.  This forum was a life saver for me about eight months ago and I appreciate the good work it does. God Bless You All

It is a car I have always thought looked cool ever since a friend of mines brother came home from the service in 1956 and had a brand new one. I got mine in 1983 and restored it to original Red and Black two tone with continental kit , skirts, sunvisor, spot light, air, and every option you can get for a 56 Pontiac. The first week of August each year we drive it 460 miles to Hot August Nights in Reno since 1993. This years trip will be more fun since I won't be coming home to a biopsy. It is also the name of my Rockabilly band '56 Pontiac. Life is a real adventure every day is gift. I'm the old guy in the picture with out a prostate.

Hey 56, i'm a guitar player as well. Not lugging any amps at present but may get into a country band or something. Just recently got my first Telecaster. Now I need a Vibrolux and i'm all set.

My situation is similar to yours. Viagra and the Osbon pump works well together. Still a little leakage if I drink to much,, lol.

Very happy for your results and enjoyed hearing the band on myspace.
