Thanks again Barry - really useful as is your thread that you linked to.
As I currently don't suffer incontinence problems (although my IPSS score is not brilliant!) and I am able to get erections I have been concerned that further treatment may lead to problems in these areas. I have been looking at HIFU but it's so good to get a first hand account. My only concern, as you point out, is getting the treatment on the NHS.
Clearly there is no point me thinking too much about what to do until the transperineal template biopsy results come through. However, like you it seems, I like to be prepared and I also like to have some understanding of what the consultants etc are talking about!
Funny you should mention external iliac lymph nodes as my results from the scans mentions 'an external iliac node which was borderline'.
Interesting also that you were able to show the results of your scans to other consultants. Did you get copies of them from the hospital and did you have to pay to have them sent to you?
