I am 74 years young. I have had my J-Pouch for over 4 years. Everything seems to be working well--3-4 bowel movements per day and I am able to eat almost everything with few complications, and I also get to exercise.
I have also had my prostate removed about one year ago. After that surgery my PSA went down to less than .01. However the last PSA test, one year post-op, my number climbed to 0.05. Although I am not yet in the danger zone yet (PSA reading of 0.2) I was wondering if anyone else has had radiation for prostate cancer and who also has a J-Pouch, and of course what are the consequences of such a procedure.
