First post op PSA


I just had my 6 week follow up (by phone)

My PSA is undetectable!!

I repeat the test and visit in 6 weeks. And the urologist cleared me for my next operation - major rebuilding of my legs.

No better news! Congrats . Now keep it down for many years! What’s up with the legs?

I’m a double leg amputee. We are going to do Osseo-Integration where they implant something in each stump to make attaching the prosthetics sturdy and more natural.

May God bless you Jason 🙏🙏🕊

congrats ....

Now my insurance company said no to the cialis.

In my limited experience, there is an enormous amount of price gouging with some of these drugs. My local pharmacy however, sold me small (20 mg.) sildenafil for about $0.50 per pill. Pretty sure that the tadalafil (generic Cialis) is not much more. Call around. It pays to have a small independent pharmacy with a pharmacist you know personally.

Congrats on the non-detectable PSA. Repeating in just 6 weeks seem a bit overly vigilant--I'm about 18 months post-op and I get tested only every 6 months.

FN insurance companies have no souls. 👎🏼

Congratulations. Even in socialised medicine Australia, Cialis is your own expense.


Hey JasonPgh!

Wonderful news! What a positive attitude with all that has happened to you. You are an inspiration!


Congratulations!!!! Yes🏆🏆👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼


Generic viagra and cialis are dirt cheap. I went to GoodRx and printed a coupon (not sure if I needed to, I think the pharmacist at Star Market Pharmacy has his own coupons) and paid very very little. Tadalafil is a bit more than sildenafil, and the strength affects the price a little, but from what I recall (and I didn't pay attention cuz it was so cheap) they ranged from 40cent to 65cents a pill, perhaps less than the copays with good private insurance.

Best of luck

Good News...... Hopefully you can get those leg implants asap..... Congrats on your recent marriage... Keep smiling.....

Good Luck, Good Health and Good Humor.
