I have two friends who had prostatectomies about the same time as me (June 2018) carried out by two of the ‘best surgeons’ money can buy. Not Professor Whocannotbenamedhere, incidentally.
They both had recurrence, and had umpteen fractions of RT and their PSA is now undetectable. One told me he has erectile dysfunction like me, the other? I didn't think it was appropriate to ask him by text.
Another friend (they come out of the woodwork don’t they?) aged 63, has just had surgery in September, but his PSA is 0.2 post op, and he is still in nappies.
His wife has told him not to bother with any further treatment to which I replied ‘Why, is she looking at a big life insurance payout when you croak after a long, lingering, painful, demise?’
So I hope, with the testimony of my two other mates - who don’t know each other - to persuade him to go for adjuvant radiotherapy.
