Thanks, MarkH. I just read more about TURP (trans urethral resection of the prostate). It seems there wouldn't be a bleeding issue with the laser surgery. There sure is with turp. This gives me pause. I think I would like the the gold plated metal stent, but I can't get that or laser surgery down here in old México.

My wife bought me a scooter so I could get around instead of using the bicycle, which the urologist doesn't want me to do anymore. I rode to a nearby town today to try it out, 6 kilometer round trip. Piece of cake on the peddle bicycle, torture on the scooter. I have some ideas to make it easier. will let you know. In the end it may be easier to walk. Maybe some day a motorbike. These little towns are a pain to find parking for a minvan.

BT, this is actually a child's scooter, albeit a little larger with a 20 inch wheel on the front and a 16 inch wheel on the back. With caliper brakes both ends. This morning I put the back axle in its upper mounting slots, lowering the platform. This greatly improved my ability to stand on one foot and push with the other. Will be thinking of how I could mount a peddle type device so that I would not have to push on the road surface for propulsion.

I have cancer in my prostate that is beyond surgery. The needle biopsy confirmed that it is aggressive. The body scan confirms that it has spread to my lymph nodes in the groin and one node that is above my groin. The bone scan shows it is not there yet. I am currently recovering from the TURP. I am taking pills now that block testosterone from feeding the cancer. I will start shots in 2 weeks that will cause my body to stop producing testosterone. This will be the extent of my treatment. We can only slow it for some time. El León

Leon,
I feel for you sir, I shorely do, but if I may offer to please somehow find a way to ensure your mind stays on the positive side my brother. I was diagnosed way back in February of 2012 having stage 4 pancreatic cancer and given less than 6 months. You may remember my story as I slipped into a bad place and lost my way for a long while. Its now been over 7 years and somebody must be looking over me as I am still kicking! Now don’t be thinking I’m all cured, as things have been progressing, but the doctors have slowed this progress, and this allows my to continue to shoot, spend time with grandkids and loved ones, as well as smell the morning coolness! I too have lost control of my bowels at times when things get bad, and understand the embarrassment that goes along. Just keep your head in a positive place, it is very important!!
There are many who care my friend.

I had a much older friend who had leukemia. The doctor gave him 6 to 10 mos. 20 years later he died of a heart attack.

Another friend developed a very aggressive prostate cancer and he did die of that. However, it was many years later.

My thoughts and best wishes go out to you.
