Well the good news is the PSA is down from 0.08 at three months post SRT to 0.04 at six months post SRT.

The water works are still a nightmare and we are still looking at either long term SPC or bladder removal and a urostomy bag. My consultant is happy to refer me to a consultant outside his circle of colleges to get a fresh view of the problem.

I do not recall seeing any other guys on here who have lost their bladder as a result of RARP or RT.

Thanks Chris

You have had a real rough ride of it Chris. When I saw my Uro after the op , he said in hindsight he wished he’d removed the bladder. Having said that they are not attributing my racing psa to that area ! On a good note it seems you did just have rogue cells in the prostate bed and the RT has hopefully fixed it. I was surprised though with all your strIcture probs that they offered RT.
Anyway best wishes mate

Thanks CJ.

It did take a second opinion to get the RT without having the bladder removed, but the trade off was having the SPC just in case the urethra closed up. The urethra has more or less survived but now they are saying the bladder has been damaged by the RT. Now the bladder capacity is quite low around 200ml uretheral reconstruction and AUS look to be off the table.

I am pursuing alternative options including alternative therapies.

Thanks Chris
