I'm 44 with prostate cancer. Looking for anyone my age who may have gone through treatment. What treatment did you choose and what complications did you encounter? Potency? Incontinence?

hi..ive chosen radiation 4 my stage 1 early detection,im 48 with a history of heart disease so i was discouraged from chosing surgery as the risk of heart attack,stroke or instant death is quite high,im told radiation with the seeds has a high success rate, im hoping 4 another 10 2 15 years and then im ready 2 go 2 the next life

I'm 50, but was diagnosed at age 49, with stage 2 cancer and a Gleason score of 7. Chose robotic surgery for treatment. Have had no incontenence (due to post surgical exercises), and erections are about 70% of normal and getting better all the time. This stuff is different for the individual, and your results could be better. In May it will be 2 yrs. and quarterly PSA exams are yielding "undetectable" PSA levels. Had no post surgical radiation or chemo. Was up walking the day after surgery, and back at work within 2 weeks.
