I had open surgery on February 14. I have had essentially full continence since catheter removal. Passing gas can cause a little leakage, so I now only do that in the bathroom. I also have to make sure that when I pee that I massage the penis to milk out the remaining urine after I go to the bathroom. If I don't do this, I may have a little leakage after I pull up my pants. This seems a little of strange, but I have come to accept it.
My doc has me on 5 mg of Cialis every other day. This is producing some soft erections with lots of manual stimulation. These are not very useful, but seems to be progressing.
I am walking several miles a day and about to talk myself into a light jog. Hard chairs are uncomfortable after 30 or 45 minutes. I drive an hour and 15 minutes to work. This is not such a big deal in the morning, but by the time I am driving home, my incision is uncomfortable by the time I get there. I had been placing a small pillow between the incision and the seatbelt. This can be helpful. I will also sometimes drive with my pants unsnapped. Both the pillow and the unsnapped pants might have been embarrassing 3 month ago. After this experience, it seems not to bother me a bit.
