Had a 9.5 PSA, Gleason score 3+4. I'm 54. Asked the Doctor, "what would you do if it were you". Told me "at your age I'd get it out". Well I never had any health problems before so I figured these guys would know. So I get hooked up with a surgeon. Get the robotic surgery, come home the next day. cath out 10 days later, leaked like a sive as expected. Three month later I get blood. Go back to the surgeon, does a scope, says I have scar tissue (very rare). Decides to postpone radiation treatments because he has to take care of the scar tissue first. (had to get radiation because surgeon said "there was alot of disease") Got home after the scope can not go to bathroom at all, not a drop. End up in the emergency room knocked out. Wake up with a cath. 10 days later surgery to fix scar tissue, surgeon comes out and says he found a surgical clip stuck in my urethra (very rare). Go back to the surgeon 4 weeks later. Does another scope but forgets to turn on the saline. Says scar tissue is back going to need another surgery. However according to my latest blood work it appears my PSA is on its way up again. I wake up the next day, could barely walk from the dry scope. Went back to the Doc and said good bye. Got a different Doc now but PSA still going up and scar tissue still forming.Then I was talking to another manwho is going through the sam exact thing as me. Scar tissue, clip stuck, average 30 pads a week one year after the surgery. So now we have two guys with the same (very rare) problems. And what is even more rare, same surgeon. Go figure. So my question is, anybody else having as much fun as me?
