Tomorrow, Oct 19, is my one year anniversary of DaVinci surgery. All four of my PSA tests this past year (including the most recent one a couple weeks ago) have come back zero. Incontinence was a non-issue almost from day one. ED has been a problem, but has improved (slowly) over time (still not there yet though). I'll be on a 6 month checkup schedule next year based on my progress to date.

My PC was caught early and all contained within the prostate.

I'm very grateful for a good surgeon, to God, and to all those who prayed on my behalf.

If you're just starting the journey, take heart, it should work out just fine.

Blessings,
Jim

    Congrats to a fellow survivor
    Congrats on your success, you are a member of the Zero club. May you keep your status.
    Praise God for outcome.
    I had radical prostatectomy March 09 and still in the Zero club (PSA 0.008).
