Review for Prostate Cancer International, Virginia Beach, VA, USA
Have been down loading info in regards to prostate cancer. I am a survivor & cancer free since having a prostatectomy with nerve sparing minimum evasive robotic surgery. This was back in June of 2017. I am on a 5 year exam including PSA blood test at my urologist surgeon’s lab at his practice which is about 25 to 30 miles from my home. Still recovering with some minor side effects which is only ED but seems to be improving. I was very lucky that I had a low Gleason Score & preceded with the recommendation procedure about 5 or 6 months from the biopsy being sent to pathology and confirming that I had prostate cancer. After my surgery the results from the Pathologist lab verification, all the cancer was contained inside the prostate capsule. No cancer found in the removed lymph glands & seminal vessels. My being able to control my urination was in about 6 to 10 weeks & only had to use a pad about once or twice a week. At this date I no longer need a pad at all.
