Great news , so pleased for you both. Can't stress enough to make him recover. Not much pain but major op internally. Don't even let him put the bags out !! Best wishes and well done

Glad that's done and dusted for him .

Now it's "just" the recovery time.

As Chris says please tell your husband to be careful. Healing inside will take a long time and it's easy to over exert yourself after the op partly due to relief that it's all over and partly to prove to yourself that you are strong enough to recover quickly.

It's not a race, he'll do better in the long run if he takes it slow and steady, gradually increasing his activities without exhausting himself.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery

Best wishes on OH recovery

Saw the consultant today and was given the news that the cancer had broken through the prostate, Gleason now (3+4)=7, T3a, nerves saved, no spread to lymph nodes . Waiting for first PSA test after surgery to see if OH will need further treatment. Consultant told us although it had broken through, it was well with the margins that she had removed. Bit shell shocked, but incontinence is good and there is movement on the ED front.

That's a bummer. Good luck with the first PSA.

Great news that nerves were spared.

Just a wee update,16 months on and PSA is undetectable, still waiting to be referred to the ED Clinic which they are going to chase up, but things have started to get better on that front with the help of meds over the last two months so we are very happy
