Okay, yesterday was a lot better with the leaking. I have started being able to hold more in my bladder and going longer between trips to the bathroom. Got up only one time last night. I feel like I will get back to being dry and maybe it will not take months to get there. I got a question for all of you. My prostate was large at 90 grams. I did not ask my surgeon which was a mistake so I thought I would ask everyone here. Does the nerve sparing become less successful with a large prostate? I am starting to wonder about
that. I guess it seems to me that if more of the nerves has to be peeled away because of the size of the prostate that the trauma to the nerves is more severe. While I have had feelings of starting to get an erection there has been no lengthening at all. I am hoping that when I start on Viagra next week things will be different.
I would also like to ask for your prayers. Yesterday I found out that my mother has been diagnosed with mestastic cancer. She is 92 years old so she has had along life and has lived by herself is her home since my father died 23 years ago. She lives in another state about
12 hours away so I can not go to her right now. She survived breast cancer that she had 45 years ago. It is tough recovering from prostate surgery and then to be hit with this news.
