      Not sure of it's my prostate but the plumbing and associated equipment down the has severely mangled. I had chemo/rads first, then surgery, more chemo, and then take down surgery.

      My internal medicine doctor didn't check this last time because I'd been through so much already. But not to worry, the urologist didn't miss an opportunity to get his finger up there. And I just had my follow up colonoscopy and I'm guessing while I was snoozing there most likely was a thorough examination of the area.

      Anyways, I'm now semi-continent with urine and basically have no way to poop completely so I do a daily enema to, shall say, get thungs moving. And finally, I have erectile non-function. Tried the Viagra and now trying the injections. Not looking good.

      On the plus side, I'm alive and free of cancer.

      Hi Thor2014

      No problems with the prostate yet. I get blood test done every year to check it out to make sure it is ok.
      I do have issues where they zap me with radiation " both hips and left kidney". Not fun at all.

      As far as your Gp. I would find another if I was you. Have you talk to your Oncologist about prostate issue/ questions??

      Stay strong. Hang in there.
      And smile

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Felt tired, some discomfort and nauseated. Even four months after completion still feel tired and sort of out of it.

      I had chemotherapy before and after my surgery and it took about a full year to recover from the tiredness

    Procedure or Surgery (Colon surgery (colectomy or hemicolectomy)): Still feel tired even though it has been six months since the surgery. They did find another polyp but was benign with a routine sigmoid.
