In 2013 my quarterly blood test came back with my PSA level at 5.5. I had normally been 3.0 for years, since I had been taking it to check for cholesterol and sugar levels. After considering the alternatives and the urologist painting a rosy picture, I decided to have my prostate removed. It is hard to tell if it was a mistake, but the resulting conditions are that I cannot get an erection and I still leak urine when I cough, requiring me to wear a pad for the past year and a half. Now the urologist claims he has a procedure to eliminate the leakage. Same people who painted the rosy picture. I don’t know why this procedure wasn't incorporated with the operation. And why is it that everyone I know that has had the same operation had a vasectomy years prior.

I had some blood in the urine and frequent urination. My bladder checked out fine via visual of bladder walls. I am a stroke patient and take a high level of blood thinners.
