Marius, I'm 18 months out from evisceration day and when I'm tired, or on a particularly hard chair, I'm aware my perineum aches. I'd not want to do much bicycle riding.
I've never asked the doctor about
it, or worried much about
it. It is what it is, and early on every couple of weeks I could look back and say it was better than two weeks ago. Now I can look back and say it's better than it was three months ago. The trend line continues in the right direction and I'm confident it will return to normal --- but, it may be a two/three year process. A small price to pay to get rid of the rotten prostate.
