We're hoping that the incontinence isn't any worse than before. The issue here (they think) was damage from SRT. The cuff remained open the entire time. They were sure that was the case, because they could easily pass a foley through the cuff. The Urethra simply eroded away under it. After this, they say Randy wouldn't be a candidate to try again. (As if he would).
I'm really sorry to hear about
these problems Y'all are having. It just goes to prove that there are no surgical procedures, and few prescript
ion meds, that don't have serious risk involved- potential bad outcomes/SEs. I lived with a deep down fear for my 36 years of administering many thousands of anesthetics. I never had a bad outcome beyond the occasional relatively minor SE which every one had ever so often. Problems that were just accepted for the benefit of the procedure.
But, I always knew what could and very rarely did happen no matter how skilled and careful the practitioner was. Then it always comes down to benefit(for those that don't have problems) vs risk. And to trying to figure out what procedures and their likely benefits are worth the risk, or sometimes not even the risk but the known likely trade offs/bad SEs.
I sure do wish I could have avoided my surgery, or any other major procedure, for my PC. But I did not see any way to avoid having something major done. And I have certainly thought more than a few times over the years that I would like an AUS and/or penile prosthesis. But, I have not so far been willing to subject myself to more procedures, not only to avoid the unpleasantness of the procedures themselves, but because of a possible ordeal like you guys( and other like Tdnjam) have been through. Or, worse. Some times knowing about
such as this can make it a big step deciding to turn your body over to the medical folks. It is all risk vs benefit.
I hope that things improve for Y'all!
