did anyone that had a radical prostatectomy have burning and alot of pressure pain when sitting, standing,or walking for about 20 minutes at a time. the doctor seems to think its my lower nerves crossed or touching.

welcome to the group. a little more information about your case and yourself would help others in providing you some answers or suggestions.

when you say burning, did you mean while urinating? if so, there are several drug solutions to that issue.

pressure pains while sitting? very common among surgical patients for what you had, and generally they get better over time. i had open surgery, and it took a good 6 months to not hurt as bad down there

the same kind of pain lingered with me for months with prolonged standing or walking. some men have it worse or better than others.

keep with us, we will help all we can with your questions, and of course, you should take all of this up with your doctor first.
