Hi, I think I am a healthy male aged 62 and attend gym classes regularly with a view to keeping fit.
I have looking to have a radical prostatectomy (complete removal of the prostate).
Having had a PSA test with a level of 12, followed by a 1.5T Multiparametric MRI scan at Bristol NHS hospital. (Would have liked a 3T scanner but unable to find a hospital with one).
Which came up with a possible cancer to the left side of my prostate.
Followed by a prostate biopsy (Tiverton NHS) which confirmed cancer to the left of my prostate with a Gleeson level of 3+4 in 70-90% of mean core volume, 50-60% of overall volume, which has not spread to any other areas.
My main question is regarding incontinence and loss of erections that will probably follow.
Does anyone know if it could be a permanent result, my other option may be to just monitor the situation through regular scans.
Any advice appreciated, many thanks.
