Hello, I'm new to all this so forgive me if I ramble on. I had robotic prostrate surgery 5 weeks ago. My caferter was taken out 3 weeks ago. I have a follow up appointment to see the consultant/ surgern in 3 weeks time which will be exactly 8 weeks since the surgery to place.
At the moment I am finding it difficult to deal with the side affects from the surgery. The incontence is difficult, I am still wearing a pad each day. I have now managed to become dry of a night time which is good but I still wear have leakage in the day time, this varies. Will this improve over time? I usallay just use one pad during the 24 hrs. Put a new one on when I go to bed & because Iv become dry of a night time that same pad does for the rest of the day until I change it again before I go to bed. I could't manage without the pad in the day time, if I sneeze, couch or lean forward when sitting or pass wind I can feel the leakage taking place. It's depressing I'm hoping this will improve.
Secondly I cannot achieve any erections Iv tried but nothing. Both these things are getting me down. Can anyone give any advice on these matters. Also I don't know what the real outcome of this cancer is regarding the prostrate that they removed as it was being sent of to be analysed under the microscope which I believe is standard procedure. Any advice would be appreciated. Many thanks Mike.
