It's fantastic that treatment is advancing. Hifu now appears in the PCUK treatment options page, albeit noted as in its early stages with results still to be proven.
Long may trials continue for this & other forms of treatment to avoid the guys of the future suffering as we have & are doing.
I've had time to reflect over the past weeks & would have to say, I wouldnt wish the symptoms im living with post RP on my worst enemy. That said, I'm not sure I could handle the uncertainty of the active monitoring that was offered to me.
I know in the scale of things, ED, urinary problems, dry ejaculatuons etc are nothing & given the choice over life or death, it's a no brainer.
That said, im finding these things frustrating, degrading & losing confidence I hope will return one day.
We made a conscious decision to have a family young so we could look to enjoy & relax in middle age. I've had my head stuck into work big time for the past 28 years & At 44, I feel vulnerable, insecure & sad for my wife who shouldn't be saddled with this either. The kids have grown & gone, my mortgage is paid, I have nice things. We are in a good place & our life plan was to enjoy these years in happiness.
I'm in the early stages, I'll tecover & get stronger mentally I'm sure & I know I'm one of the lucky ones.
