I was diagnosed with prostate cancer summer of 2010. After trying to learn all that I could about what to do, I decided on RPS, which was done in August 2010. Initial finding before the surgery was, out of 12 core samples, all but one was cancer. If I remember right, I was given GS-5, with T-1. After the surgery, when the results came in from the autopsy of my prostate, everything was upgraded significantly. The surgeon told me that if I had not had the surgery done when I did, the cancer would have escaped to other organs. For 3 years no erections, incontinence was manageable. Then the blue pills started to work only half the time. Year 4 after the RPS, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer again. So from middle of May 2014- second week of July 2014, I went through radiation therapy five days a week. The doctors now will not tell me that I am cancer free, but say that I am in remission. I know that I am cancer free. September 2013, I had artificial urinary sphincter as the incontinence had gotten worst, April 1, 2016, penile implant, due to heart attack with open heart surgery in Dec 2014.
