I just got diagnosed a few days ago with prostate cancer, Gleason score of 6-7.  I have had the j-pouch for a little over 20 years and have had my issues with pouchitis, etc.  I'm 64 years old, and I think in reasonably good health otherwise. 

Has anyone here had recent experience with the various treatments?

Have you been able to identify a doctor who can remove the prostate?

My father was diagnosed a few weeks ago. The cancer hasn’t spread, but he needs to do something  soon.

He wants to pursue the prostate removal, but his doctors in Dallas don’t have experience with it in J-Pouch men and don’t want to do it.

Thanks for your help!
