Just back from a cruise with the family. eight weeks after surgery we boarded the ship.  A few days into the trip noticed I no longer needed pads! Also had honest to god sex with the aid of Viagra.  Even my wife said it was like old times!  All that after getting clean PSA on the six week check-up.  There is hope!
