I had a robotic radical prostatectomy one year ago, this month. My PSA level was within the normal range, but my Primary Care Doctor notice that the score had increased a little for 4 consecutive years. She referred me to a Urologist, who was concerned enough to do the biopsies, that I did indeed have prostate cancer.

The only side effects I have had are, my belly button used to be an "Innie" and it is now an "Outie." I also have dealt with incontinence for the past year. It is now mostly under control, thanks to 10mg Vesicare and daily Kegel exercises.

I was already rated by the VA, as 100% disabled but I filed a claim, anyway. The prostate cancer was also rated at 100%. That may seem redundant but it isn't. If Prostate Cancer happens to ultimately lead to my demise, my wife will be eligible for Dependents Indemnity Compensation (DIC) and other VA benefits. If you have now or have had Prostate Cancer, in the past, be sure to file a claim.
