Prior to starting CIC 30 months ago I had an mp3T-MRI of my prostate. The radiologist fits a 3-D ellipsoid of revolution to the prostate ( football shape) using dimensions from the MRI and then computes a volume. My volume then was 180 cc and my prostate was oriented with the short axis along the urethra.
A few weeks ago I had another MRI at the same location and the same radiologist. My prostate volume had not changed much (197cc) BUT the orientation of the long axis was now along or parallel to the urethra!!
I've also noticed that during the 30 months of CIC ( 4 times a day) I use up more and more of the catheter. The catheter is 16 in long and when I first started I would have a couple of inches left at the top upon full insertion. But now the catheter goes almost right to the tip.
So it does seem that daily CICing has reformed my malleable prostate from an oblate spheroid to a prolate spheroid with the long axis aligned with my urethra! Interesting!! Happy Holidays! Howard
