I am new to the site and happy to have stumbled across such a great resource for the LGBT community. Ok so i am a 50 years old, roughly 2 weeks post RP and happy to be feeling much better each day.
My doctor confirmed that the final post-op pathology report showed that the cancer was confined to the prostate and did not spread. A pre- op MRI confirmed the same so I am feeling pretty good about choosing surgery and admittedly picked a highly qualified surgeon to perform the procedure.
My cathater was removed this week and a have 95% control with only minor leakage. I will be taking pills to regain erection but sex can wait because I believe it will come and with some adjustments I'll make it work.
that's my intro, and now my question is about the healing process and subsequent scarring after Robotic surgery. The six incisions appear to be healing well but I am hoping for minimal scarring. I just don't want a whole lot of What happened" questions while at the beach or something where I need to take my shirt off. I would love to hear from folks who further along in the healing phase.
God bless everyone...it's a wonderful forum!
