I just asked Dr Shen how prostate exams are done with jpouches and he stated only do PSA tests... 

I'm glad I saw this post. I'm supposed to have a prostate exam this week. Did Dr. Shen give a reason why? My psa is good for my age (73) at 3.08. Also interesting that he is moving to NY. He may have saved my life (but that's another story).

I had a followup with him and it was just a random question I had asked him about how prostate exams are done with a jpouch.. He just said to do a PSA test. I am 48 so I am getting to that age

Pouchomarx, I just had my appt. with Urologist. I'd had a urinary blockage after surgery a year ago, but things are looking good now. I told him I didn't want to do the digital exam now because I want to get more info from Dr. Shen. My Urologist was ok with that. (I've had an abscess in my j-pouch that Dr. Shen repaired endoscopically and don't want to do anything to cause damage in there.)
