So I am having a prostate biopsy tomorrow....

Post by tector »

...tell me what fun things I can expect.

My prep sheet says POSSIBLE bleeding out the ass or in the urine for up to a week, and 4 to 6 weeks in jizz (that'll make you popular with the ladies!). Also an infection risk (on antibiotics now). What am I looking at on the pain side (during and after), like getting ass-raped by an elephant or something less?

With all the advances we've had in recent years and everything getting smaller I'm sure it will be more like getting ass raped by a mouse than elephant.
Good luck and hope all goes well.

What is your PSA?

No big deal. Had it done in eight years ago when I was 69. Took 16 biopsies (urologist told me it was the biggest prostate he had ever seen, but he probably tells that to everyone). Fifteen were negative, one was positive. I finished up with a cryoablation to freeze the prostate and kill the cancerous cells. Get an annual checkup now, and PSA stays around 0.1. Before the op, it was jumping a treat. Good luck.

Good luck to you, chief. I assume you will gift me a few weapons after you die? :lol:

I am just over the PSA threshold where they do these things. I think it was the rate of change that bothered him. If I was like 10 years older (I just turned 59 yesterday) they probably wouldn't pull the trigger.

Basically they shove a dildo up your ass with a clipping device at the front and take a dozen or so “samples” that they screen for cancer cells. Yes you will squirt bloody jizz for a few weeks. If it needs to come out, do it. You’re pretty young still, relatively speaking, and even though its a slow progressing cancer the chance of it spreading to surrounding areas is too great. Good luck!
