Anyone have an Ultrasound-Guided Transperineal Prostate Biopsy?
Will be in Rochester the week of Memorial Day to have my Esophagus scoped, have Barrett's Esophagus and to also have the above mentioned biopsy. I have a lesion on the prostate and a PSA of 12.75 with a free PSA of 6. My last biopsy was a transrectal Ultrasound Guided one that came back with no cancer. Three months ago I sent my last biopsy done here in Oregon to Mayo for review and they were very surprised that it seems that the needle didn't get the lesion. Since I was scheduled to return in May for the scoping I decided to have Mayo do my next Biopsy. Never did have a Transperineal one and was wondering if anyone here has had one? If yes, was it done with you out or just with a local? How were you after the procedure? Thanks in advance,
