Hi everyone - just joined. I was a reasonably fit 52 year old guy when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in March this year 3TB Gleason of 9 and was operated on in May (open radical prostatectomy). Unfortunately after the operation I was told that I still had cancer (lymph, base and apex) and told I was 'still high risk'. After initially seeing my psa reduce to 0.03 it has now started to rise. I am due to have another psa check at the end of this week. So will no more about my future path soon. Although the operation was uncomfortable I didn't quite understand how mentally damaging the lack of continence and due to having all the nerve bundles removed how it has affected my personal life with my wife. My continence has improved greatly but I am stuck with adapting my personal issues.
Good luck to all of you that are struggling... I hope you have good new soon.
