One year and 6 days ago I had radical prostate cancer surgery. I had started riding 1 year previous to this and my PSA was already elevated so cycling had nothting to do with my cancer. It was detected very early.
My big concern was that because of cycling I was in the best shape of my life at age 51, and I knew the healing process would restrict me from sitting on that US Postal Minimal seat of mine. In 7 weeks I got on the stationary recumbent and started to peddle. I lasted about 10 minutes before I felt some pain. I increased my time by a couple of minutes daily and within a week I spun for about 30 minutes. I got on my bike a surprisingly my bottom did not hurt, but I had no energy and lasted only 5 miles. In less than a week however I was able to go 20 miles and finished 5000 miles for the year. Any questions about prostate cancer I would be glad to answer
