After Prostate Cancer & Still Loving My Life

Dr. Silver explained that HIFU destroys only the diseased part of the prostate, which means that side effects like urinary incontinence and not being able to have sex are less likely. This is unlike radical surgery or radiation which both are riskier for these 2 side effects. Also HIFU is done quickly (approximately two to three hours), in a single session and at an outpatient surgery center, away from the main hospital, so I could get in and out quickly, and avoid any risk of contracting Covid.
