Back in January of 2009, I underwent a DaVinci nerve-sparing robotic, but after 20 months, according to two CT's (March 2010 showed 5.9x7.2 fluid density lesion in the left iliac chain causing mass effect on the urinary bladder. And my most recent on Sept. 2010, showed it slightly increased to 6x7.6.

The reason for the CT's, is that I also have Carcinoid Tumor Cancer. (Two surgeries thus far - One general right-hemi-colectomy, and one previous DaVinci to remove cancerous tumors between my seminal vesicles and anterior to my rectum...RECTUM, I nearly killed em'! haha) The wee wee doc said that a radiologist can drain the fluid. Having this lesion has caused me to go to the bathroom much more frequently than before.

Has anyone else (as far as you know with a CT scan) showed any similar lesions of your own? My wee wee doc told me this happens more than I think, and can be a common occurrence,and wanted to know just how "common" this is with other patients on this forum.

20 months out and I still can not achieve an erection. I'm a little dismayed that some guys write on this site they can get an erection one week or less after robotic, out of frustration to my wee wee doc, he told me they are not being truthful,and not to believe everything you read on these forums or anywhere else on the internet for that matter,that's probably not the case with most men, and 90% will take time to get it all back, if at all.
Well, the Viagra did nothing but made me broke,and I am still dribbling after doing the Kegels for the first six months, then sorry to say, gave up from frustration.

Sorry you've got this complication to tackle.

And I'm afraid I'm one of the guys your uro doesn't believe exist. I had two erections within a week of surgery while the catheter was still in place. Not that they were pleasant to have, or usable!

Try not to think of this in terms of being dismayed at what others can do. I was far more dismayed at not getting into the zero club. And as far as I know David (purgatory) is another guy who does not have ED and I think it's safe to say none of us would like to be in his situation.

Yes frustration can be a problem, a big problem perhaps too, but don't give up. Take a break maybe, than tackle things afresh.
