This is a shadow box I made for a charity auction a couple of years ago. A clock made with Viagra stuff that drug reps had given me over the years. The guy that bought it, brought by for me to autograph it. I called it …”Hard Times.” The plaque near the hammer says, “In hard times…break glass.” Ps…should have never sold it …it was too clever and valuable to sell.
- Does a prostatectomy change a man’s libido? No. Libido is in a male is a function of the hormone testosterone and that is produced by the testicles and hence not affected.
- My free PSA is low. Should I have a biopsy? Well, do put some credence to what your doctor recommended. Remember him or her? The lower the free PSA the higher the likelihood of a positive biopsy. When you get the report back there will be a percentage beside the free PSA that will give you your odds of a positive biopsy. It can be helpful in the patient reluctant to pursue a biopsy, i.e. helps “make the case” for a biopsy. As a matter of fact, a low free PSA was what did it for me. Mine was low and within a couple of hours I was having a biopsy during lunch. The low free PSA was the breaking point for me and may be of help to you. Caveat: I have a friend who had a high free PSA (unlikely to have a positive biopsy) and every core of the biopsy was positive for cancer. So take everything and I mean everything with a grain of salt.
