It's several months since I posted.
However, this is an update. PSA 14.4 August 2021 - and has increased steadily up to that date! Earlier in the year, an MRI and local biopsy revealed cancer in the prostate to one side.
15th Sept 2021 I had a transperineal template biopsy under gen anesthetic
Results on 20th October 2021 and a slight increase in cancer cells, therefore, changing what needed to be done to combat cancer spreading outside of the prostate.
Given plenty of details by the consultant and after by a nurse regarding whether I went for hormone and RT or prostatectomy.
Weighing up my situation and options I have today told the hospital I will have the surgery to remove my prostate. This is what the consultant was suggesting as the best situation for me.
It's now a wait of 6 to 8 weeks before the op.
There have been no letters about actual details since my recent visit to see the consultant so expect the letters soon.
Already had a detailed questionnaire about very personal matters.
Vacuum tumescence service and continence service are also now aware.
My flow rate has been very good. Erections, disappointing! Hope that the flow rate doesn't become a serious issue. Erections and orgasm, perhaps not hope too much from those after things settle!!! All a bonus! Perhaps the tablets suggested taking regularly (Sildenafil).
All down to the wait and the recovery from now on.
Since the new diagnosis I have become calmer and positive :-)
