yes, had radical prostatectomy in '02 and radiation for 35 days in '03. No problems until 2011, with PSA showing up from 0.01 for 8 years but now, in three months, from 4 to 6 to 17. Will begin Lupron shots (3 per year) and Cassadex (2 pills daily). Confident that it will be helpful. No other side effects except urinary incontinence since the surgery. Better than having cancer but not very convenient with daily living (I'm over 75 now). Anybody else with similar situation???
