What Happens to Sperm after Prostate Cancer Surgery?

What Happens to Sperm after Prostate Cancer Surgery?

I have no prostate after surgery. The surgery also removed all seminal vesicles and vas deferens. What happens to the sperm in my testicles since it cannot be ejaculated?

I want to know. Does anyone know?

Yes. The sperm are reobsorb into the body as I indicated before. I had the robotic surgery over 6 years ago. I found out I DID NOT have to have the surgery.. bummer....

I was with Jeff for over 15 years but he passed with cancer. Dating has been a nightmare.  I work out at the gym 3x a week and have always keep in athletic shape. STILL dating is difficult.

I had the surgery. I have a wife. I had 60 days of penile rehab therapy. Everything is working well. Blood flow was restored to my penis. I used Cialis 5 mg for daily use.

what is penile rehab therapy?

Reply

He gave me 60 days of Cialis, 5 mg, for daily use. He said to take it at the same time every day. He said it is part of Penile Rehabilitation Therapy. By the 5th day I was able to achieve an erection easily. The therapy increased blood flow to my penis. The 60 days went well with good results. I finished the therapy on March 21, 2016. I still have good blood flow to my penis and I can achieve an erection easily. I just wanted to share my good news. I hope everyone has some success in overcoming impotence. I'm only 62 and I'm thankful for the help my urologist gave me.

I had my surgery at age 55. I am 60 now. No one I know, with the exception of you , were able to get erections after the surgery. The rest of us are mangled and gutted like a fish.

Good question, Bob.....and one I can't answer. Maybe it simply becomes reabsorbed into one's system?

Dry orgasm

After radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate) and cystectomy (removal of the bladder), a man will no longer produce any semen. The sperm cells made in his testicles ripen, but then the body simply reabsorbs them. This is not harmful. After these cancer surgeries, a man will have a dry orgasm or an orgasm without semen.

Not always dry. Sometimes urine is ejaculated during climax.

Right. There is no sperm.
