Glad to see meet ya here on the other side. Now its time to heal, adjust to your new body and keep moving forward. Take your recovery in the 3 steps- treatment, continence, and erectile disfunction- in that order. By reading here, you have already probably figured out some realistic goals for each. Step one is to begin walking a little at a time, with lots of rest between, increasing each day. Don't push your usual physical exercise, allow your body time to heal first, but do stay active and on your feet as much as possible without wearing yourself out.
