Just an encouragement to all of you going through this procedure of having your prostate removed. My details are below but as a follow up, it has now been 14 months and all is pretty well back to normal as before the surgery. No problems with incontinence and no ED problems with or without medication (Cialis).
But patience is the key
It will not all come back the next day. But for many, it will
Hang in there, stay positive and try everything you are told.
