    Oh No

    Routine PSA thru 90s at 2-2.3...then not tested until 4/08 @ 5.0. Tested again in 9/08 to be 5.4. DRE indicated that a biopsy should be done...result was a Gleason 6. Consultation offered equal outcomes for radiation or surgery. DaVinci procedure performed 9/09... Surgeon's indication was that nerve-bundle was spared. Subsequent PSA have remained @ 0.02max at each 6month intervals post op. Incontinence lasted a couple of months but disappeared...impotence still a problem. ED drugs only slightly effective but unsatisfactory. Now waiting for "what's next".
