I have recently joined CSN after reading many posts over the past 4 weeks. It certainly appears that although nobody really wants to be part of this group that it’s like everybody is your friend and that you try and help each other. I find it very heart warming.
I was diagnosed with PC in September. Gleason score 3+4=7 PSA of 4.9 (that had gone up in a year) Clinical stage T2B and I am 68 years old. I did not care for the Urologist I had and through must research and discussion the Mrs. and I decided to get a second opinion. We ended up at Sloan-Kettering and after waiting almost 2 months was able to get an appointment with the chief of Urology Dr. James Eastham. After weighing all the options we decided to have the surgery which was done on January 11th. I had the RRP nerve sparing surgery. Final pathology report showed cancer contained to the prostate. By the way, great hospital and surgeon.
Sorry it took so long to get to the question, but I know it’s only been about 5 weeks and do see some progress with leaking. Is there anything else besides the Kegel exercises I can do. It seems that at night I am good but during the day if I do the slightest thing I leak. Using about 5 or 6 pads a day which doesn’t seem like that much. I would appreciate any help and thanks in advance.
