Chris- a busy couple of days for this website then! Good luck with yours.
Lyn- no, they've not asked for a psa, but it will be less than a month since the last one so maybe this is why.
We were offered RT after the surgery because of the high Gleason score 5 +4, but decided not to take it. They were confident the surgical margins were clear. A mistake in hindsight?
Is there anything we can do to reduce the likelihood of ED as a result of RT?
What advantage would there be to HT? I thought that this was only for those with a prostate. I am so ignorant, even now!
Chris- they might be waiting a long time if they have to wait for full continence!! The surgeon is very proactive, and feels there is a pattern of rising psa, and it needs to be treated. He feels the sooner this is done the better, and we tend to agree.
Kevan- no, the issue hasn't been raised because I didn't know it was an issue. But it will be top of the questions list, thank you! I'm sure he's continent enough to manage a full bladder. His incontinence tends to be stress incontinence and is worse when he's tired. He has a very physical job. When he does nothing, he barely leaks.
Thanks for your input everyone.
