I had an aggressive prostate cancer at age 45. Now, almost 6 years following surgery, I have detachable levels of PSA at 0.19, slowly rising about 0.03 every 3-6 months. Doctor doing a wait and see method for next 3-6 months to see if level rises above 0.20 then plans to radiate old prostate area to kill off any active cells that may have attached themselves prior to previous surgery. Your thoughts?,View Thread
I had surgery 3 years ago and YES, it is normal not being able to achieve a full erection. am taking Viagra and it barely works. I took the injections, but they work but painful! I am considering an implant.View Thread
I had the same surgery in late 2007. I am very thankful for the cancer removal but suffers as you do. I have tried all of the drugs and I must say the viagara works best. I am considering aan implant however!View Thread
