Good luck to you Doc. My PSA had shot up to 17.5 just before I started my treatment. I have my PSA checked yearly now and for the last 4 years it is undetectable.

That is very cool for you... Everyone of us is somewhat different.  I have older friends who have had radiation, targeted directly on the prostate and then years later had it recur and also had scarring on their bladder with other issues; some suggest that there are some possibilities that preclude other treatments if it recurs, so I hope to be learning a lot more then I ever wanted to know!

Thank you ever so much for your input!  I'm indebted to you for that! :pray:

To clarify, the recovery time of 12 weeks was just a limit on weight you could lift.  I could care for myself 2 days after surgery and was expected to walk as much as I could - multiple miles if I wanted.   After a week I could drive lift up to 10 lbs and only had restrictions on the amount of weight I could lift after that.

That's kind of you to clarify...

As I said, each doc I have seen around the country seems to have their own belief on how to recuperate post - op...so till I find out I NEED surgery, I will file all these things...

10# isn't much and not sure that would still make a difference, but we'll just cross that bridge once I know more, but thank you so very much!
