In another thread, he posted for the first time saying:

Congrats t-dog. I am now 2 weeks post-robotic prostatectomy and I must say I am more than delighted with the results. I think that I have overdone it in some areas and I am a little concerned. On day 6 while my catheter was still in, I experienced an erection while fondling my partner. It was a wonderful experience mentally but very painful afterwards. On day 2 after removal of my catheter, I had sex but no orgasm. The next morning, my abdominal area was very sore and I passed tinges of blood at the end of urinating. None the less, I have had sex every night since then with orgasms that are exactly similar to what I am used to.
My concern is that the bloody drips after urination have not gone away and it is also a little uncomfortable towards the end of urinating. I have my first post-op follow-up tomorrow and I hope to be told that this is normal for a while. I know it is stupid to continue to have sex while I am not fully healed but I say I wouldn't until my queen wraps her legs around me. Crazy crazy me!!!

Bimshire, welcome to the forum. I must say this is one time when I can't figure whether you are complaining or bragging.... wink
