I will tell you when monitoring will be accepted instead of surgery, when it involves actually simply waiting. Right now monitoring is worse than surgery. They expect you to have routine biopsies along with taking drugs to stop your testosterone. Try to sell that solution. Ask anyone who has had a biopsy and see if routine biopsies sound like a good idea to them. It sure didn't to me. A good predictor of success is the skill of the surgeon, the time it takes to build muscle and the real key, is how much of your urinary tract they can leave intact. Will you be the same, probably not, but at least you will be done with it. Oh and caffeine makes your situation worse so you really have to consume less than when your prostate was enlarged. Just when I thought I could go back to strong coffee and cokes too. Oh well, be patient, it may take a year. Cut the caffeine and increase the fiber.
