It's great to find you.
I'm three weeks post-op rad prost.
What a ride... Had a biopsy late May. following a visit to a urologist. It was good news, 1mm diameter (1 hit in 8 biopsies) He said it was amazing he hit the tumour at all.
By all accounts I'm lucky enough to be ahead of the game. Continence has been excellent.
The next step is back to regular activity slowly over the next couple of months.
My question is, when should I be starting to deal with the ED medications (Cialis, Viagra etc). What about herbals, like horny goat weed etc.
I get some thickening now, but don't know whether that means anything or if it's a post-op thing?
