I am from Maldives. Diagonised with Prostate Cancer in 2013. I had the option of removing the prostate or radiation. My PSA was 24. My Gleason index was 9. I was stage 2. I was 52 when this happened.
I opted to do radiation and everything went very well. I had absolutely no problem with Radiation. My PSA dropped to <0.001. But I was on hormone injection (Lucrine) for 3 years and stopped on December 2015. I did my treatment in Malaysia. I gained a lot of weight doc says because of Lucrine.
January 2016, one evening I had bleeding while passing urine. only one time.
I was in China then. I came back to Malaysia and met my doctor. Did a Urine check there was traces of blood but not much. I live in Malaysia. One night a small piece of stone dropped and I went and say my doc (oncologyst). He sent me for scanning and found 1 cm stone in my bladder. He refered me to a urologyst. He said he has to blast the stone and flush it out. He also know my history of cancer. Urologyst told me while he is doing the stone thing and if he find my prostate is blocking the urine flow he will do a TURP. otherwise the stone will come back again. So eventually urologyst did a TURP on me on March 2016. the advantage of turp was a piopsy was done on the removed and there was no cancer. Afer going home it bleeded 2 weeks and stopped. But till today I a struggling with leaks. Sometimes very bad. sometime tolorable and sometimes non. burning sensation is there if I hold longer time. Can wait around 2 hours. and dont have to get up in the night.
I am wondering if this leaking will ever stop. Is there anything I can do to stop leak. Doctor have prescribed a medicine and said you may have a difficulty passing urine and if happens stop it and come to me. I travel a lot and scared to take the medicine as I dont know where the difficulty will pop up.
I am waiting for Ramadan to start to eat the medicine as I will be in Malaysia with my family for a whole month. I shared for 2 reson just to let members know my case and if it can help you. Also I would like to know if there i a procedure to stop the leak if so where.
