My husband is just about
9 months out from surgery. Although my husband had complete ED after his surgery, he is seeing the first sign that his ED is starting to get better. In the last month he has woken up with an erection a few times. While he still has ED, I think this is a very positive sign that he has a chance to overcome it.
For his ED he is under the care of Dr. John Mulhall, who has helped him through some difficult times. However, anyone can follow Dr. Mulhall's program for ED rehabilitation.
For those men who are still deciding on a treatment for PCa and who are considering surgery, I think that choosing an expert and experienced surgeon is the most important thing. Although my husband's cancer had escaped the prostate, my husband's surgeon was able to save 75% of his nerves and also get clear margins. I worry every day that he might have a BCR, but for now his PSA's have been undetectable and his ED is showing the first sign of the possibility of resolving.
7/12 PSA 5.2
8/12 Biopsy, 7 out of 12 cores positive, 5% to 70%, 6 cores G6 and 1 core G7 (3+4)
Age 60, diagnosed at 59
RALP October 2012, Gleason 3+4, negative margins
