GEON, Welcome to HW. Look forward to hearing more from you.

Good Luck with your journey

    PSA 5.7 - Discovered during Annual Physical with Family Practice Dr.
    Gleason 7
    Biopsy - 3 of 12 positive (up to 75%) all on left side of prostate
    RRP on Oct. 17, 2006 - Nerves on right side saved.
    All Lab's clear.  No Cancer outside prostate
    Cathiter in for 3 weeks due to complications in healing. Removed Nov. 9, 2006
    First Post op PSA on Dec. 11, 2006  Undetectable 0.00
    Office visit on Jan. 19th due to continued excessive urine leakage.
    Feb.20th Cystoscope and 2nd Post Op PSA. Another 0.00.....:)
    Dr. said everything looks fine.  Continue to work Kegeal's. Leaking appears to have improved  after Cystoscope?!?!?!  Down to 3-4 pads per day!
    March 1st  Leaking has crept back up to 6 - 8 pads a day ??????? 
    March 8th Started Detrol LA to see if it helps with the leaking?
    March 29th Collagen injection into sphincter / bladder neck area to control excessive leaking.  Worked for a couple of days then back to leaking.
    April 17th (Six Months Post Op) 2nd Collagen Injection to control excessive leaking.  Leaking started back next day at work!
    May 14th Second Opinion about my leaking and Options at OU Medical Center.  After reviewing my records the Dr. feels I will probably need some surgical intervention to stop my leaking.  But did agree to try Bio-Feedback and work hard on the Kegeal's first!
    May 30th Follow up with my Dr. and 3rd Post Op PSA 0.00 agian!!!
    June 1st Start Bio-Feedback to try to control my leaking.

Hi geon,
Welcome!!!  I'm so glad you found us!   yeah

I've enjoyed reading your posts thus far and wish you great success.  Please let us know how we can help anytime.  There are a lot of great folks here!

If you wish, there is something you may choose to do that would be helpful to those in the forum.  It is certainly not "required" but it would be nice if you could create a brief signature profile under the "Control Panel" function at the top fo the page.   You can optionally show a signature at the end of your posts when you use the "Post Reply" function (instead of the Quick Reply).  This would provide form members with a history/summary of your diagnosis and treatment progress when you post.  This helps members respond to you appropriately.  You'll see many examples in the forum.  Again, this is available to you, but is totally optional.

Again, it was very nice to "meet" you and we look forward to news of your continued progress. 

Kind regards,

"Idaho" ~ Barry
