I'm angry. Really angry. For well over a decade Dr. Bob and I have gone through the yearly physical including PSA and DRE. Always normal until a year ago. Now it turns out that I have a tumor that encompasses damn near the whole gland and is "extracapsular" (i.e. has escaped the prostate) not to mention it abuts one set of nerves that control erection. I'm 52. I have a sexy, young partner. Once this prostate is removed, it's unlikely I'll ever have an erection again. I just want to scream and throw things. I'm so fucking angry.
