Same here...start the kegal's now along with walking. The incision of the RRP was not that bad. I did have a complication after surgery but just due to bad luck. Went to my 1 month post cathater appointment today. Dr. said I'm progressing in the bladder control about adverage. I wish I would have been one of the quick leak stoppers. But, it is getting better. Dr. said just keep up with the exercises.
While I had "the hang" I wore a light robe that the wife sewed up the middle when no one was here. Other times wore sweats or shorts. I only had the leg bag which made for frequent trips to empty it. I would ask for both the large hang bag and the leg bag.
Pain wise I'm not sure, I had thrown my back out a few days prior to surgery. So, having to spend so much time on my back made it hurt. Maybe that is why I really don't remember the incision site being sore. Did not notice being tired a great deal. Strength never bothered me either.
I had been on the 25mg Viagra / day plan. Had only slight firming and leingthing. The Dr. added the 100mg when ready for "action" to the plan today.
Oh yeah...like the other post said. The Boy's were swolen and purple after surgery. But it does go away!!!
I too went RRP because I was relaxed and confident with my Dr. One reason is that he is about my age. Kinda figured he could relate a little more about going through this at 43.
