Just wanted to stick my nose in here, my hubby had a radical done Dec. 6th, 2004. His recovery time was minimal although the doc kept him off work for 3 months. For the first 3 months he had no bladder control, did his excersizes faithfully. Then he started having less and less leakage. He had to wear a condom catheter when he went back to work as he could feel the need to go, but could not hold it. We are now 10 months post-op and he has total control. Wears nothing.
He tried the Viagra, Levitra and Cialis with no sucess. The doctor finally put him on a medicine called PAP+. It is injected into the penis with an insulin needle and he says there is no pain, and it works for him.
He is 56 years old and has also always been very active and in good shape.
Oh, The doctor called his procedure "nerve sparing".
Just wanted to share our experience with you.
Good luck to all..Our PSA is still looking GOOD.
Don't walk in front of me....I may not follow
Don't walk behind me....I may not lead
Walk beside me..and be my friend...
and Lord, put your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth
