WHAT'S THE POINT OF THIS SOCIAL NETWORK?

The "New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink Social Network is a service of Prostate Cancer International and is closely associated with the core information and daily news made available through The "New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink. We welcome patients, family members, physicians, researchers, and anyone else who is seeking information about what's happening on Planet Prostate Cancer.

If you want to remain anonymous on this network ... do not use your real name when you sign in. Use a pseudonym, or just your first name and an initial.

One of our primary goals is to help newly diagnosed men to come to the best possible decision for them about a specific course of action. Given two men with exactly the same clinical characteristics, the best possible decision for man A may be very different to the best possible decision for man B.

Hi Mike I only know at this stage that the operation was positive in that the prostate was as diagnosed a Gleeson 7 3-4 after surgery. I had a catheta for a week after coming home but have been incontinent since however in the last couple of days it has eased and I'm getting the urge to visit the toilet which is great. I have my first specialist visit Monday so will have a more accurate picture then. Thanks for your contact Rowan
