Hi I'm new to this. I' m 60 & was diagnosed with prostrate cancer just before Christmas and have had robotic surgery 10 days ago. Everything happened so fast. I hope that Iv made the right choice by having the surgery. I'm still in a lot of pain at the moment. I go back to the hospital this Wednesday which will be exactly 2 weeks from surgery, to have the caferther removed. I am feeling very anxious about the whole thing. I'm really worried that I will not be able to control my bladder properly & there ll be little chance of any erections again. Before I had surgery I had no problem with erections, every morning I woke up with a nice erection but from what Iv read this isn't going to be the case again. I have t got the follow appointment yet to see the consultant who did the surgery apparently it's 6 / 8 weeks after surgery that you go back to see him. This appointment on Wednesday is to have the caferther removed, I am so sick of this thing inside of me, I can not wait for it to come out. It is now beginning to hurt at the end of my penis. Can any one give any advise regarding anything ? Regards Mike
