I thought I would update my friends here, since it's been weeks since I posted. I am still where I was with incontinence & impotence. Almost no leakage at night nor while sitting and I can make it to the pot when I get up. But once I go, the drip, drip, drip starts all over again.
Actually, there has been a couple of times I have had improvements in erections, but none usable. I have had success in erections via injections, but that produces discomfort even though I have been able to penetrate, ... or maybe it's the condom I must use since I am still leaking. I have been able to please my sweet, even tho it's painful to me. We usually just pet and cuddle. She is so supportive!
Does anyone know of a case or cases where someone has become continent even after 11 months?
At two uro's encouragement, I am staying dry by use of the clamp, but that's nothing to brag about, is it.
I am thinking of switching urologists again, to attempt ot find someone who is more aggresive in treatment, if there is such a kind. Does anyone know of anyone here in Dallas? Let me know, if so.
