I miss the ejaculation too.
I think the key here would be to transplant the entire "sub-assembly", from penis, testicles, prostate, nerve bundles surrounding the capsule.
Hook up some blood vessels, splice some nerves, attach the top of the prostate to the bladder neck, and voila!
Now where do we find a surgeon to do it?
I'm thinking a young drive-by shooting victim as the donor.
Small prostate, young testicles, lots of testosterone.
Robotic Surgery 11-2008 at 64 PC totally contained within capsule
Diagnosed 6-2008 w/ Gleason 6 & PSA 6.5
Subsequent PSA tests show undetectable PSA
Dry the day after the catheter removed, some erectile capability at 3 wks, slowly but surely getting better, wife loves the pump. I can achieve an erection sufficient for penetration, but she needs more. Daily Cialis or Viagra, purchased overseas - my insurance won't cover it. Viagra works better, faster, but Cialis doesn't stuff up my nose as bad
Testosterone replacement therapy for two months to counteract the effect of a Lupron shot (was originally going to get a Brachy, BIG MISTAKE. Thank God for second opinions). Natural testosterone production came back, one of the lucky ones.
Why would ANYONE have EBRT or Brachy (the shot in the dark) when robotic RP has become such a great solution? Except maybe to put your urologist's kids through college? The run-up to the aborted Brachy cost me more than the entire robotic RP! I can see Proton Beam - a good solution if you live in So Cal or Houston and have two months for the daily treatments, but conventional radiation?? Why not leeches and blood letting at your local barber shop?
Good Morning KEYWESTPIRATE:
I am presently investigating Brachytherapy as a treatment alternative and am interested in your reference to the procedure as -the shot in the dark- would you kindly provide some details of your experience and the aborted Brachy you refer to.
63 years old-tumor discovered on digital exam- biopsy December 2008-

Otherwise excellent health.
