Well, had my cryo 7 Dec, went under at 3pm and was sat up with a cheese and ham baguette and a cuppa at 5pm!! Less discomfort than the transperreneal biopsy, and I didn’t even need a paracetamol for that, so happy days!! Was due to stay in overnight but, as I was feeling fine and wife was in local hotel, they let me out at 6pm. Catheter was no problem at all to deal with - did have a bit of a blockage problem which I won’t bore you with as the consultant said it was the first time it had occurred, most likely nicked something when he inserted it, so not really anything to do with the procedure itself, just unfortunate. Meant I had the catheter in for 10 days as opposed to 5 - it came out completely painlessly and didn’t even know the nurse had done it until she said I could pull my trousers back up!!
Had first PSA 5 weeks later, 0.39!! Awesome!! Just had first quarterly PSA, 0.42!! What we all want to hear, absolutely zero side effects!! Peeing like a Skegness donkey, no problems getting an erection, maybe a slight reduction in ‘gentleman’s gel’ production, hard to tell and nothing to write home about!!
So, I literally cannot recommend it highly enough and fingers crossed PSA stays at same level. Got 3 more quarterly tests followed by an MRI at the end of the year.
