No, this post is not about the last time I was able to ejaculate. That particular little squirt I remember fondly and clearly, even though it also seems a distant memory at this point (it was actually in the wee hours of the a.m. on July 25, 2006 - but who's counting?)...

No, this post/complaint is about that irritating last little squirt that happens when I try to get up from the toilet mad ...

- that little squirt that reminds you about your prostate cancer, and the after effects...

- that little (ok, sometimes not so little) squirt that gets all over your clothes when you forget that it's coming as you stand up...

- that little squirt, that comes sometimes a little bit late in its attempt to get on your clothes and manages to get on the freshly new pad you've just put in, denying you a few minutes of complete cleanliness...

- that little squirt that is always there, even though you spent and extra 10 minutes (I had to read the sports page anyway) trying to get the bladder to empty itself completely, and thought you had...

- that little squirt that reminds you that the bladder is never really empty, and even if you drink nothing for hours before your body is constantly putting stuff in your bladder...

- that last little squirt that goes into my vacuum pump when I try to do my therapy...

- that last little squirt that happens after you planned ahead, didn't drink anything for hours, know you want to try to have sex, and have already broken the spontaneity by stopping foreplay to use the vacuum pump, emerging to further remove any illusion that remains of spontaneity, and reminding you again of how quickly your bladder fills and also that it is not so little after all...

- the last little squirt that I would strangle if I could just find that guy and get my hands around his neck...

Anyone else wanna kill this guy?

devil

Happy Hump-Day! (though there's none of that going on here...)

Well, I'm not necessarily down to just one, it's just that is the one that aggravates me to no end.

I've found that if I get in a hurry when I pee, and I don't wait to make sure theres no residual urine in my urethra, It'll dribble down my leg when I put it away. I really have to give it a good shake when I'm done.
Nothings quite the same anymore. And your right, right in the middle of an attempt at intimacy with the wife, the urge to pee kicks in and ruins the moment. Although I haven't pee'd on my wife, I'm afraid it's going to happen sooner or later. We have to learn to live with it somehow and pray it eventually returns to normal.

Conversely, there are those of us that had no issue with the last little squirt. Our issue is the wilting timber. That is when you wake up ready to go. Your wife is thrilled but there hasn't been time for any warm up. So you reach for the magic moistener, reach for the timber and find instead a withered vine. Which really withers when you get her look of, "you woke me up for...????"

Isn't PC recovery fun?
I sure do wish I had found this site pre-surgery!! RRP 10/25/05 I don't remember all the scores. Have had clean checks ever since. Never had to use the pads!!
