Like I have said before never give up hope on yourself.
Over the last week or so we have been talking about many things. From what procedures are best to all the side effects that come with them. In a way we can't say what procedure is best because we are all different and we all have different concerns.
Let's talk about procedures. We have many. I will not name them. We all know what they are. You have some that are less evasive to hard core surgery's. Healing time can be from 4 weeks to a year. Some men heal faster then others. It just depends on the procedure.
Also most procedure are done in the office or a surgery center and you go home the same day. Then you have some of the major procedure that are done in a hospital that you have to stay 1 to 3 days. It just depends on you health.
Before I get into side effects I want to let you know about a book I just read that was sent to me. It is about Proton procedure for Cancer. It is about 300 pages. It give you a lot of information about the procedure but I found it very cold. Out of the 300 pages. Retro ejaculation is only mention once. It say that being you over 50 your not having kids and you don't need it. And I did not like the way they talked about sex.
They had a question on one of the papers you have to fill out. This is for men I guess that are over 50 years of age and have cancer. It ask how many times a week you have sex. You have to reply 0 to 2 That is all they had on the form. The man that was answering the question said what do I answer. My wife and I enjoy sex 5 to 6 times a week. He is in his late 50's. The doctor told him that just mark 2. But that is a not a true answer. Then the doctor told him after the treatment if you can still get a erection that you will only be able to do the deed a few times a month. No fooling it is in the book I don't think it is a selling point. In a way they are saying that being your getting rid of the cancer the other stuff should not matter.
With any procedure you do you have to look into all the main things. How is it done and what are the side effects. If retro is a problem then you have to ask questions and see what are the chances of having it. It can go from 0 to 100 %. Depends on the procedure.
If retro is one of your concerns. What procedure you have and how good your doctor is will determine the out come of your procedure. Get a second opinion see if you can talk with the patients he has done. Also make sure you have all the test done to make sure the prostate is the problems. It can be anything in that area. Also make sure you know something before you go to the doctor so when he tells you something you have a idea of what he is talking about.
If you do not want to do the procedure say so. Do not let them bully you into a procedure. There was one man on here this week the doctor told him he needed a biopsy. He told them no he wanted a MRI first. The doctor told him that is not the way it's done. He want home and found out the doctor lied just to get him to do that procedure. That is not right. Put your foot down take control it's your body.
Please research any procedure ask question and tell the doctor your concerns. If he will not answer your questions or under plays anything you are concerned about. That is a red flag. Say thank you and find another doctor. Life is to short to give up on you. This is your life and you should be able to have fun and enjoy all you can.
God bless you all. If you need any information I can help you with I have a file cabinet of information for the internet and doctors I have talked to over the last 4 years. Just ask.
Have a great day and good health to all.........Ken PS Sorry this is so long
