I have finally stumbled onto this chat forum, having searched for some time to find others dealing with these post prostatectomy issues.
I had a Gleason 3+3, T1C small tumor removed by DaVinci system in 1/06, so I'm just over 1 yr out.
All my PSA numbers are, clinically, zero. So that's good.
Continence fine...still have light pad and very minor mostly "stress" leakage, but for the "ease" of urinating now, it's a small price to pay after years on Flomax.
Reading the posts, I am in the group with "no problem" on orgasm...very intense and, generally satisfying.
My question is more one of mechanics: even with Viagra (and recently, Levitra) at "hi" dose levels (100 Mg Viagra, 20 mg Levitra), my erections are 50 -75% at best. (By the way, had very bad headache on Levitra and probably won't continue with it).
So...while we CAN get to orgasm, it isn't easy to manipulate and make it happen. And...there's some leakage of urine when it does.
I have the vacuum pump, but haven't tried it yet.
Any comments from the "pump" users? Would it be easier to stimulate using the "pump" for better erection?
Thanks...I'll try to help others with my story as well, if any are interested.
