given reality of high rates of post op impotence then this needs more discussion. A great way to resolve problem, indeed may even be better than pre-op. If it is pumping and working well but suddenly seems to fail, try pumping while concurrently depressing valve to "reprime" - works well.
Another problem of urinary ejaculation during sex is real;-
Empty bladder before activity and/or during a break (shower)
Use "no wet spot" sheet and remove when settling to sleep
Use condom (s) for all activity and discard frequently.
Warn your partner, she me be surprised (& delighted) at the intensity (amount & frequency) of ones "cuming"
if into wet games then the constant ejaculate can be a source of amusement.
I am 8 yrs out from RPR(laparoscopic), Gleason of 11 but clear margins. PSA now negligible consistantly. Doing well. 20 months from prosthetic surgery - excellent result though I am slowing a bit from a peak of t.i.d. plus for 3 weeks!! while on vacation with new lady friend who insisted on full range of positions. best thing that has happened since my cancer diagnosis. Thanks to the urologist concerned and the industry creating the implant. Life again worth living.

wow that's great news. I heave heard implants basically return people to their teens and 20's in terms of performance:)

Glad to hear you are happy with your implant, especially since I am scheduled to get one early next year.
You are our first Gleason 11, by the way. I'm pretty sure the scale only goes up to 10. Typo?

yes you are right it was a typo Ten is the number..
Another issue I was surprised at in the process was the bloody ejaculate post biopsy. Not really a big deal just a disappointing end to the normal product (ion).
Anyway still here nearly ten years on so it was all worth it.
