I was curious if anyone else has these problems. See bottom. *
I have posted here about
my radical prostatectomy going on two years and four months after post op.
Yes, I am still wearing designer style depends diapers, and frequently dream of the days past gone (prior to surgery) when I used to get excited and have an erection with my girl. ENTER NERVE-SPARING ROBOTIC SURGERY. Whoops, there it ISN'T. The thrill is gone. Oh yes, one can dream...can't one? Ok, got the niceties out of the way.
A year and a half post-op, I did kegels religiously, anytime sitting, or standing around, or anytime i thought about
it. The the control got better, then i thought, ok, that's over with, now I have to concentrate on getting the blood flow going again.
On the last two CTs, they noticed a lymphoceal or fluid density lesion, to my bladder, which has grown to about
a 6.3cm x 7.6cm causing mass effect on the bladder, which was a possible side effect of the surgery, well, it's gotten bigger and I asked the weewee doc what I should do. he said do nothing, or get a doc to drain it, but it's likely to re-occur.
* What I have been experiencing in the last four months is, when I get the urge to pee, I have to RUN RUN RUN to the closest bathroom, or pee my diaper, which is no real fun. It seems to also kind of burn when I hold it in those drastic moments while running to the bathroom.
I told this to my Primary doc, (before I see my wee doc for a routine visit in a few months) and they ordered some urine tests, which came back negative for anything. Thank you!
