Below is a link to my next report on our ED survey. In this I mostly compare sexual function before and after surgery – I did not have enough seed implant cases to reasonably tabulate.220.127.116.11/report.html
The first statistical report, which shows the exact question and response wording, is here:18.104.22.168/snew002.pdf
Still to come is a report on the penile rehabilitation questions. I welcome suggestions for further analysis, but remember that if we start breaking things down too fine we will end up with tables with only a very few cases in them (In fact, to preserve anonymity, I won’t generate such tables.)
For the real geeks, the survey was designed, administered, and analyzed using a commercial program called Snap Surveys. I’m just learning it, so please forgive any strangeness that introduces.
