After 50


I swear, the wheels are coming off the wagon.....

If I haven't had enough health related issues with aging, I just had the fun of getting laser surgery on my prostrate.

I know I have been really hard on my body.....but I really don't remember anything you can do to avoid prostate issues....if there was, I wish I had known. The urologist did say my lifestyle was a contributing factor....lots of mo0torcycles and extended driving or working without stopping to take a leak.

He said, and we have all heard it.....never pass by a bathroom. I wish I had listened. Having a catheter in place until tomorrow sucks bad.

Re: After 50


More sex is supposed to help.

I don't know if there is a scientific study to back it up.

Re: After 50


Hope you get back up and running soon. Even pushing 70 I have had little problem in that area, thankfully. My PSA numbers where on the rise and so last year they did a biopsy done it was neg. Then then this year the PSA number went way down, best it ever been. Somethings I hold it to long too, but anymore if got to go I stop even if along side of the road.

Re: After 50


My latest PSA was 4.03

Something else to worry about. I will be 59 before long, and I spear, arthritis and all the aches and pains are a bummer.

Re: After 50


I remember the first time I told my body to do something and it just says nope. Then you have to start listening to it.

Re: After 50


62 is when i really started feeling aches & pains.

prostate getting a little cranky.

mainly arthritis, i get real stiff & sore if i sit or sleep too long.

things take a lot longer to do now days which is VERY difficult getting used to.

17 years ago ortho surgeon told me looking at x-rays of my knees i appear to be a prime candidate for knee replacements.

However, he said that since i have full range of motion, excellent strength and lack of pain hold off,but...you'll know when it's time.

well i'm figuring out it's getting to be time.

Re: After 50


I'm just glad ne and my dog are on the same pee schedule.

He wakes me twice most nights, I pee twice most nights.

But yeah, bathrooms are usually in my schedule, but more for stomach issues than peeing.

Re: After 50


I did pretty well until I hit 50, started getting grey hair, bad back, I had already had my left knee operated on 5 times by then, at 54 years 11 months I had a heart attack, my body is full of arthritis and it's getting harder and harder to get motivated every morning. I'll be 60 on July 6th.
So tell me about this "more sex" idea How much is more?
