I'm new here. I was recommended to the site by Jim, who I played golf with today at Little Bennett.

Urologist recommended me to clinical trial at NIH specifically for their targeted MRI where they have you in the tube for an hour with a probe/imaging up you butt. They founds two areas that appeared suspicious. NIH biopsy found cancer in those two areas. DiVinci at NIH Bethesda 5/9/17 with Dr Pinto. Removed prostate and 16 lymph nodes. Doctors said DiVinci shut down for 1/2 hr during procedure; they had to pull everything out and call manufacturer. 3 months out usually one pad a day unless golfing then two.
