This is an update to my original post “Erection five days after surgery” .
The catheter is out what a relief. The incontinence is minimal, mostly when I try to lift something etc. But control is very good. It has been about 30 days since my prostate removal with bilateral nerve sparing surgery. Still a little sore in the area of removal. Erections begin with just visual stimulation. Although not the “diamond cutters” I had prior to surgery, I am quite pleased so far. Blood flow into my penis is good with no drugs at all. My wife is sure I get “exercise” down there at least twice a day. I find wearing a proper size rubber O ring at the base of my penis helps with the erection. I am still allowing the surgery to heal, especially with some of the horror stories I have read about men trying to have sex too soon and damaging the surgery. During one of my “exercise sessions” I did have an orgasm.
(You guys know what it is like going without sex for over a month.) LOL.
It was very intense, although my concern I would damage something did take away some of my pleasure. I am able to have an erection firm enough for sex, soon, but I know when I do I will be like a teenager and probably have no control due to the excitement.
If anyone wishes to email me with questions or for support please do.
