I had robotic surgery 6 months ago and my physican accidently cut into my prostste during the procedure. My PSA is now going up and he says I have cells throughout my body. I was given Lupron to slow the cancer down, but I was was told there was nothing to cure it. Does anyone know of any alternatives.
I am 59 years old and just found out I had Prostate Cancer last Thursday. My Gleason score is 3+3 and there were 4 out of 12 samples that showed cancer. My surgeon is recommending Robotic DeVenci surgery and assures me that I will be able to have an orgasm, but it will be a dry one. I have had some ED disfunction and he thinks that may imorove as well over time with the removal of the Prostate. I know my other option is radiation, but I am concerned about the long term complications. Can anyone share with me their results of either procedure? Thank you, gjbklynView Thread
Thank you for responding. I just read about the proton radiation and I do have an appointment with a radiologist in the next few weeks. Is this technique a better option than surgery or seed implants in your opinion.
