This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
My update is that after 7+ months the procedure has become quite routine. I do it on average 3 times per day and on occision I feel a little scratch from time to time but, mostly it's painless. I have had 2 UTI durning that time, don't know why, it just happened.With the Flomax and Avodart my prostate has reduced in size but,complete voiding on my own is not happening. Seeds will have been in for a year in October. I'm retaining less urnine in my bladder but, still need to do the trick myself as stated above.
