Hi All... Well Im back and I apologize for not communicating much since my last post. I know been a while but felt I was being a big baby... You all that have had the patience to stick with me have been a true God send and I wanted to say THANK YOU. Im about
12 weeks out now from my surgery march 20th. I am glad Im looking backwards now and not waiting for the OMG what next days I had after surgery. My Post op stats if i didnt give them as I dont remember:
Gleason 7 4/3 Tc1
still gleason 7 4/3 tumor feelable
some escape but surgeon says he felt it and thinks he got it all
first psa taken 14 days after surgery PSA 2.6 :(
Second PSA 30 days after surgery 0.01 WHOOO HOOOO hope it lasts
wont have another one for 90 days
any way I hope im on the way to staying .01...
contenance has come a long way. can go to bed and only get up once. stream now good from dribbles of first couple of weeks. Still on pads during day as I leak when I get up or stress myself
still have a few disturbing moments but feel it is normal. Sex drive is good but phisical side sucks
can have orgasm but no erectionl Had nerve sparing and doc says it will take time. Have great wife so not overly concerned there yet as alternative are still fun :) .
So Pee or not to Pee. any ideas on how to control the squirts ? I sometimes try to tighten up the muscles but still pee when i stand up cough sit wrong and move etc....
I do hold pretty well for normal urination. I get the sensation and can make it a min or so till i evacuate so feel pretty good about that. I at least will go back out in public now :) . I still wear depends diapers when i go to bed even thought they are dry in the morning ( security blanket ) is this normal psychology or not ? I do worry as at times my penis gets damp and hard to keep it dry . It has really shrunk up since the surgery and gets tight against my testicles and either sweats or stays damp for some reason. Also experiece mild pain in penis but doc says that is normal and will eventualy go a away. Not bad pain but just a irrating pain that itches more than hurts. I hope im not being to graphic and dont mean to be just dont know how to ask ( politicaly correct ) and discuss these things....
Any way thanks and God bless all you wonderful people
