Five months ago I had focal cryo surgery to remove two lesions from my prostate. The surgery ended up removing about 35% of the gland. Going in I was 4 + 3 and PSA 7.9. 90 days after PSA dropped to 2.5. Five months after my PSA is 2.4. In terms of side effects, I have no urinary issues at all. Strong flow and no incontinence. Sexually, I am still on Cealis. I'm not back to pre surgery functionality, but not bad. I'd say about 70% of where I was before. Exam on Tuesday, doctor reported that my gland felt smooth and soft. Very normal feeling. If all goes well, I will have another MRI and biopsy at 12 months. I am happy with this treatment option. If you are considering radiation or total removal, I'd be happy to tell you my story.
