I was at my yearly golf outing in northern Michigan (TreeTops) last week and for one round was paired up with a fellow PCa survivor.  Fred is retired AT&T tech, all around good guy, darn good golfer, and a fellow Detroit Lions fan (someone has to cheer for them).  He had robotic lap. surgery about 6 years ago and on the back nine we were comparing note.
 
One common thing we did find was that it now take more than one or two shakes of the willy to empty it of urine.  With out this you always ended up with a wet spot in your short at best.  Neither of us had this problem before surgery, and now have no leakage issues.  One or two shakes was all it took back them.
 
Does anyone know why?

Combination of getting older and getting older would be my guess. (loss of muscle control)
 

I know I’ve had days where I’m really anxious about something like a job interview etc where all the shaking in the world doesn’t help…

Thanks Steve. I really don't like the word older at 43 however ;)

I'm 43 also and have to make a more conscious effort to be empty. Part of it I think is an increased hypersensitivity to anything being in the bladder, in an attempt to stop leaking...

I've only had a high density biopsy and I seem to have the same thing. Just a little leftover and it takes a bit of shaking to clear it.

I also feel like there's something waiting to come out down there at times now instead of just bladder pressure. Never had that before.
