I hope this Email finds everyone well. I am a 74 year old male. I have had my J-Pouch for about 1 and a half years. It was done at Johns Hopkins Hospital by Dr. Bashar Safar, a great surgeon and wonderful person. So far so good; going to the bathroom about 4 times a day and eating almost anything I like without a major problem. And I am playing golf and exercising almost everyday. I feel good.
My problem is I had a PSA test. It was a 9 and they say men of my age should have a score of around 5-6. And my general medicine doctor wants me to have a biopsy of my prostate. I am not inclined to having this done.
Any thoughts recommendations would be appreciated.
