That "undetectable" PSA report sure helps, doesn't it? I'm glad to hear that you got good numbers, and that you are making progress.

I still had noticeable, but not strong, pain around the sutures for the camera port incision (center, at the navel) at +12 weeks. The doctor blamed that on the slow breakdown of the levels of internal muscle sutures, which he said were very heavy threads. They would cause to me wake up at night if I rolled onto my side. He says that the stabbing sensation is actually the ends of the threads moving around as they dissolve. Even today (+17 weeks) there is still some discomfort if I stretch too far, but much less often.

Your leakage factor is good, much less than mine. That is a real significant plus.

I have had intestinal discomfort more often, but that may also be because of diet changes I've made. It could also be the type of stool softener you are taking. You might ask the doctor or pharmacist about that.
But as always, if something causes you concern, contact your doctor.

Thanks - if some one like you have same issues than I feel more comfortable and peace in mind - My doctor doesn't talk much - he always said - it is common and will take time! Since PC detected on me, my mind always worry and concern about anything happen in my body! Just worry about something happen but late detection! Thanks for you comments. Sometime I need to take Tylenol or Diarrhea medecine to make me feel better.hope it will go away soon - beside that everything looking good - 1 little wet pad a day -ED OK (no pump no pill for now)- try to walk 45 minutes during break time at work.
