Prostatitis Forum & Social Network

Acute and chronic prostatitis discussion. Arnon Krongrad, MD, moderator.

Lets say that after getting surgery for prostatitis, the patient never gains back his continence and can't have any erections. Are there other surgeries to correct this problems? I remember a few years back that prostate cancer patients had to get a separate surgery to be able to get erections. They had to get some sort of pump implanted.

Is there still hope for somebody who can't recover completely?

Yes there is. There is an operation to insert an artificial urinary sphincter and as you say an erectile pump. See http://www.laparoscopicradicalprostatectomy.co.uk/lrp.html.
