    I was riding 4 days after the biopsy and 3 weeks after having my prostate removed. Haven't had any problems. Two weeks seems pretty long after a biopsy.

    I have to agree wit'cha about the neecle thing for men. I wouldn't want it done to me.

    And that mammogram description of yours seems prettttt-ty accurate.

    I rode my velomobile from the doctors office, didn't think to ask if he approved. If you feel comfortable, you shouldn't have a problem after a BM or two.

    Was this a laproscopic operation? Seems pretty speedy.
    Three weeks after, I still looked like I had been hit with an axe.

    Just wanted to let you all know that my biopsy was negative for cancer. Thanks for your concern. Also, I have been allowed back on my bike. Whoohoo!

    Yes, with the Da Vinci robot. After 5 weeks I'm still not up to the miles I was doing before the surgery but almost.

    I was just informed I will need to undergo the same needle treatment May 1st. My doc told me the same thing only he added "no sex for two weeks either" No one above mentioned anything about that. I guess it's like riding a bike eh.

    Best of luck cgallagh. It is not much fun but is definitely endurable. I hope your results come out as good as mine.

    I got the results today and they were negative for cancer . Seems my prostate is larger than most. Not due to anything other than that is what it is. I also have some calcification. My doctor told me I need to have a PSA and a one finger wave annually until some time when I think I will be dead within ten years. At that point I can just forget about it. We both laughed at that.

    Yee Hawwwwww!

    It's not a big deal. You are given some local anesthesia to numb things up, so you don't feel any pain.

    OK - me next for the biopsy on 10Aug. It's encouraging to see there are negatives as well as people back on their bikes after RPs. My group does the robotic RP, so if necessary I might have it better than an open surgery.

    Just wondering how one wears Depends in bike shorts - maybe a super-think chammois? Seriously, that incontinence risk is what really bugs me. But I guess experience and technical execution by the doc makes all the difference, so I'm going to check some batting averages.

    I hope I never have any procedure done to me which is described using terms like "core sample". Damn.

    Good luck with the results, sv_ted.

    I'd listen to your doctor. There can be post-biopsy bleeding and riding your bike would only confuse the issue should a problem arise like bleeding or pain. Here's hoping it doesn't and here's hoping your results turn up nothing but healthy protate tissue.
    I had my biopsy three weeks ago. It's embarassing and undignified, but it didn't hurt. More like getting snapped by a small rubberband 12 times. Even got to watch it on the ultrasound monitor.
    Dr had said no riding for 4 or 5 days, but I had more bleeding than expected (clot gave way) so I took a week and a half off from riding.

    You could probably go out and buy a recumbent with a Comfy Chair seat and ride it for 2 weeks with no problem.
