I had successful operation in DaVinci robot about one year ago. Dry from day one. No ED. Works even better then before operation strangelly enough. One thing puzzles me. How come I feel everything much stronger now. Like beeing a teenager again. No use of Viagra or such. All works fine. Eventhough half of nerves was removed I feel a stronger sexual sensation now when having erection now then before operation. Is there any more guys out there who experience this? Orgasm is stronger and longer. :-)... Can anybody give a scientific solution for this??

Thou braggard......................Ha, ha, seriously, The rest of us envy you, I suppose.  No function yet here, but I can report that the sensation had steadily increased from a weak little feeling after cathter removal, to at least as much knock you socks off sensation as before surgery now but they do seem to last a little longer than before.  I had read of a few others who have reported more intense and/or much longer lasting orgasms now.

I have the same experience. It's disappointing in one important way (no ejaculation) but better in some other ways, including length of orgasm. My naive explanation is that previously duration was linked to ejaculation, which was finite. Now there is nothing physiological to say "well, time to stop".
46 years old (45 at diagnosis), Australian living in Germany
PSA: started around 3.5 in 2005, 6.1 at time of surgery
Biopsy: nothing found in 2006, 3 May 2007 3 of 24 cores positive, Gleason 3+3 or 3+4 depending on pathologist
RPE in Munich, Germany on 22 June 2007
Post surgery pathology: organ confined but less than 1mm from margins, Gleason 3+3, pT2c, Lymph nodes removed and clear
First post-surgery PSA 31 July 2007: 0.01 Confirmed in September evry 3 months since. Fully continent immediately after removal of catheter on Day 8.
No potency issues but still taking small doses of generic Levitra "as required" as my security blanket.
This man knows he has been VERY lucky.

Gosh darn I am proud of you guys. I hope to see the day I can regain something. Surgery, radiation, lupron, casodex, has rendered me impotent and no libido. All seems like a fond memory of a life gone by.
Keep up the good work my fellow friends and enjoy life.

peace and love
