Dec 10, 2018 · Prostatectomy in Prostate Cancer

I had mined done three years ago.(nerve-sparing). At the mayo clinic in AZ. By Dr.Swanson. I checked in on Wednesday afternoon.Had the surgery done Thursday morning. Spent the night in the hospital. Friday morning they get you up and walking checkout of the hospital at 4 pm, back to the hotel. They want you to spent the night before you leave for home to make sure that you are not having any problems. The following week went back for my checkup and to have the tube removed. I had incontinent for 16 weeks before everything was back to normal, I had ED for nine months before it returned to normal. PSA was less than zero. Some pain and soreness the first two weeks. The nurses follow up on me.Here at home to make sure everything was going OK. I get checked once a year. (PSA) no problem.

I am evaluating therapies at the moment. My urology Dr.Kurtz, has made me an appointment, with an oncologist to explain to me the different treatment that are available. Proton therapy, is not available here in las vegas. Which I am most interested in. I am 69, the cancer has not spread outside the prostate. Trying to figure out which treatment offers me the best chances for a cure with less side effects. (i.e) (leakages)
