Paul’s results came back, 0.01.
It’s been 8 years since the op. Really pleased with the result.
The surgeon did very well with the continence, not a drop leaked since surgery.
The third part of the trifecta is a 50/50. Is it possible for Paul to have sex with Viagra, yes. Is our sex life the same, no. For Paul, the best part of sex was the spontaneity and since that’s gone he just isn’t as into it. Which is a pity.
All in all, with two members of Paul’s family dying of prostate cancer, one of them at 60, I am glad that the surgery has worked for him.
