Post Surgery Day 392 – UTI?

The initial test came back negative on the UTI. 

The doctor started me on Antibiotics, and I am waiting for the results of a culture.

Have next PSA test at the end of the month with a followup in June for the results.

Post Surgery Day 388 – UTI?

I have a PSA blood test towards the end of May with a follow up in June for the results.

In the meantime, I think I may have a urinary tract infection, I have a visit with the urologist tomorrow morning to see what’s going on.

Post Surgery Day 317

I haven’t posted anything in a while, but not much is changed.

I just finished a visit with the urologist. My PSA is still zero praise the Lord!

I will have another visit in 3 months, and then go to 6 months if everything is still okay.

I’m still having minor problems with incontinence. According to the doctor, it hasn’t been a year yet, and I am doing fantastic.

The workaround for E.D. is working fine. Again, I don’t want to go into details on this. You can send me a contact form if you would like to discuss.

I appreciate everyone that has been praying for me, and all the encouragement.

Post Surgery Day 193

I had my followup appointment with the Urologist. The PSA is “undetectable.” Praise the Lord!

We talked about incontinence, which is almost gone. The doctor felt that it was much better than it should be at this point due to the extent of the surgery. He thinks given time it will go away altogether.  

My next followup appointment will be in January. 

Again, I thank everyone for their ongoing prayers and concern.

Phil 1:3

Post Surgery Day 184

I had a followup blood draw for my check up next week.

Everything is progressing fairly well. The problem with incontinence is still there, but a relatively minor irritant. Lord willing it will continue to improve.

I have my followup appointment to get the results of the blood test next Wednesday.

Post Surgery Day 109

     The problem I’ve been having with incontinence has improved 1000%! While it is still a problem, it is much better now. I am now able to spend  time out, and at functions.  Next follow up with Urologist is in October.

Again, not going really wanting to go into detail on this, but I have started taking steps to address the E.D problem.

Post Surgery Day 93

     Had follow up with Urologist today. Result of blood work, PSA is zero. This is fantastic, it means the cancer is indeed gone.

     We briefly discussed the incontinence problem. It is getting better. He asked how it is doing at night. At night I am doing great, he said that is a good sign. A lot of it hinges on how much water I drink, and when I drink it.
     We have been attending the East Texas Baptist Camp Meeting the last two nights, and so far everything has been going well, the situation is manageable. 

     We then briefly discussed E.D. This is a subject I really don’t feel comfortable pursuing in detail here. I was offered two options for treatment. I will leave it at that, again, I am not going to pursue this in detail due to the audience and the subject matter. 

     Again I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. Phil 4:6-7

Post Surgery Day 85

Figure it is time to provide an update. 

Going in tomorrow for a blood draw – follow up PSA test. Have the results next week.

Had to skip two camp meetings last week due to this problem with incontinence. My wife and I did visit another church Sunday. That did go well. I will also be presenting our ministry this Sunday at Calvary Baptist Church in Mesquite during the morning service. I am not anticipating any problems there either as the time will not be extended.

I am pretty sure we will have to skip the East Texas Baptist Camp meeting this year the following week. We will see how next Sunday goes.

Again, I want to thank all those that have been praying for us.

The incontinence is improving ever so slowly. But it is improving.
