    I'm afraid I cannot offer any useful suggestions. This board used to be very active. I'm not sure what happened. Good luck to you.

      Hello keith63, I am so sorry you are going through all this. That sounds miserable. I had a robot-assisted radical prostatectomy in May of 2018 and, fortunately, no problems after that (other than the usual temporary incontinence and not so temporary erectile issues. A catheter six or eight times since the surgery? Ouch. Not fun. Well, I hope things improve for you. There are some posters on this board who are quite...

        I went through the same thing in early 2018. My psa level was around 5. I had the biopsy and 6 of 12 samples were cancerous. I had a radical prostatectomy performed in May of 2018. The surgery went well, and the path report showed that the cancer was contained within the prostate. While the biopsy was not pleasant, it isn't too bad. Some bleeding but that was about it. Good luck to you. By the way, I also am an athle...

          First of all, are you having a radical prostatectomy? I had one in May of 2018. Following the surgery, I was eating a good amount of tomatoes, salmon, tofu, steamed vegetables, beans (black, pinto), tofu with vegetable soups, miso soup. I stayed away from dairy and meats. I now eat some fish and occasionally chicken but am trying to eat mostly vegetarian. I have pretty much eliminated most dairy products. I switched ...

            Hi Ralph66, I have no specific recommendations. Just want to offer my support. I had a radical prostatectomy in May of 2018, so I am interested in this discussion. Best of luck to you and others dealing with this issue.

              Popsy, I enjoyed reading your story with Efudix. Yeah, it's a real trip. I have done it twice during the past 15 years and it was pretty rough at times. I used it on my face, lips, and scalp. The lips were difficult. There was a point for about 5 days where I couldn't eat any solid foods and was mostly consuming smoothies through a straw because if I were to open my mouth too wide, the lips would start bleeding. Yuk...

                Hi LP, I tread your note with great interest. For what it's worth I will share my situation. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in late February of 2018 and had robotic surgery in May. The surgery went well, the margins were clear, and the side effect profile is improving. Not too much problems with ihncontinence. Sexual functioning is not back yet even with Cialis. Considering moving to the injection option for e...

                  Hi John, Good to hear that that the incontinence is continuing to improve. This whole ordeal is quite a trip, isn't it? I'm now almost 5 months post surgery and the incontinence is minimal, only occasional instances of some stress incontinence and those probably would not happen if I would pee every 90 minutes or so. Best wishes to you as well.  Himads

                    Hi John, Glad to hear your are improving with the incontinence issue. Keep doing those Kegel exercises. While they are kind of a pain to do, I believe they are helpful. I do most of mine in the car while I'm driving.  Have you heard anytrhing from the post-surgery path report. I hope your margins are clear.  Alright, hang in there John.  Himads

                      Hi John, Thanks for the update and congratulations on completing your surgery. I did not have any nausea but I understand this is one of the common side effects. I hope that has subsided. I hope your catheter is out by now and you are continuing to recover. Have you got the results from your pathology report yet?  I am scheduled to review my first PSA results post surgery (I had surgery done on May 7) tomorrow...
