Just wanted to check in and possibly give some hope to others.
Decided to have surgery 2 1/2 years ago. I was 68 at the time and in good health, exercised regularly all my life (no Diabetes, vascular disease, some BP elevation treated with losartan) with a PSA of 6.4 which had fluctuated around 6.0 for 7-10 years. The Opko 4k blood test resulted in my deciding to have a biopsy (offered with IV sedation). Gleason 7 [4+3] and [3+4]. I work in nursing homes and met enough men with advanced PC to decide I needed to rid myself of the 45 gram beast within. If I didn't get treated I'd go berserk in spite of the fact that my wife and I had a pretty active intimate relationship.
Erectile Dysfunction followed surgery despite "nerve sparing". Used cialis, viagra, rings, pumps,
L-arginine, turmeric with inconsistent results.
Well...in the 30th month of recovery I've had 4 AM erections sufficient for penetration this past week! Bottom line - keep trying to improve your physical and mental health.
PS: It would be really helpful when posting to include your age, other health issues, previous treatment/duration of treatments.
Hang in there! Thanks for reading.
