GLEASON 3+4 =7, adenocarcinoma of the prostate, MRI organ defined disease.
PSA of 2.1.
Operation- at Mount Vernon= Iodine-125 seed brachytherapy on September 2016.
So far I seem to be ok after a little tenderness while passing urine and the trips to the toilet during the the night.
I am taking tamsulosin x 400mg once a day after my last meal and amlodipine 10 mg once a day for blood pressure.
