7 EBRT to go of 44
Thank you for the postings and comments all very informative. I was diagnosed in 0714. I am so happy to have those additional five yeas but the side affects and constant worry wear on you.
I thought I should give a little bit more info about where I am with all this. I had been treated for BPH for several years. At first, I had no symptoms at all, and the diagnosis was made following digital. My PSA has always been around 1, so my GP was treating it with 2 oral medications. In the summer of 2018, I told my GP that I was having an…
We need more research on prostate cancer for men. Just to deal
Women have it much better they can live a normal life after cancer but if we get prostate cancer the doctor tell you all will be fine and to get another hobby.
That’s not right……
First of all I was not going to say anything but I just have to.
What I’m going to say is my opinion. We are all different and we all have to do what we feel is right for us
I’m sorry for anyone that gets prostate cancer or any cancer but no doctor or disease is going to tell me what to do with my life.

Thanks for all the responses. It’s still a struggle. Sometimes 2 steps forward and one step back and somethings 1 step forward and 2 back. I’ll have 1 or 2 better days and then a terrible one. It isn’t bad it sitting but it’s definitely worse when I try to increase my activity. I have seen the surgeon and started some new bladder relaxat…

We recently had a Phd/Researcher/Dietician address our group about food and it’s impact on prostate cancer. He covered food for prevention as well as using food as medicine to slow the progression of prostate cancer.
If you have tried and have not been successful with other options such as pills, pumps, shots or Muse Intra-Urethral you may want to consider a penile implant – check out http://www.mayoclinic.org › penile-implants › about › pac-20384916

I’m Feeling Fine.
This is my first time on the site. I just received my diagnosis at the beginning of the month.
Thanks for your followup reply, Bill. I appreciate the details about therapy. I went to USC for some pelvic floor help last year that included an anal sensor to record the strength of my muscles for kegeling. It helped, but it wasn’t the same as what you describe.
