its been a while since i have been on here. my life is pretty much back to normal .THANK GOD!
but i would like to hear from the guys who have had the surgery and give us some updates.
i dont see anything current or detailed . thank you.
i pray for us all every day! GOD BLESS!!
I had surgery in July 2010.
Thanks. How long did it take you to recover from the surgery?
About 6 months.
That's what Bob and Nick said. All of my friend's who had the surgery for cancer had no pain or discomfort afterwards. Funny how that works, huh?
Well I had both and I did have pain and discomfort afterwards but was pretty much recovered by 6 months but overall healing takes years I believe.
So do you consider yourself still recovering, then? Nick said, 2 to 3 years.
I think I'm where I'm gonna stay now but I can tell improvements in spontaneous arousal more and more.
So you still have some pain and discomfort? Sorry, just trying to figure out where I am in all this. Thanks.
No pain or discomfort, just take it a day at a time and before you know it 3 years will have gone by......
Peter, did you had any urinary problems (frequency or urgency) before or after surgery? How often do you have to go now?
Yes I went all through the night and day, it was terrible. Since recovery from surgery I only go once through the night and probably every 2 hours through the day but I constantly drink water during the day.
I was lucky. After about 3 weeks after the surgery, I was about 98% continent. Don't even think about it now.
