I had lived eight years with an enlarged prostate and had an MRI and then a biopsy. In Barcelona where I live, robotic prostatectomy is not covered by insurance, but manual laparoscopy is. The pathology report is in, and there was five percent of cancer in the prostate, margins clean, surgeon says I'm cured.
A month out, I'm wearing a pad during the day, and taking 5 mg. daily of Cialis and hoping to throw away the pad soon and have an erection. Doing Kegel exercises.
I am two months out from the operation and have almost regained complete continence. I am taking 5mg of Cialis every day with a kicker of 20mg once a week. It's expensive, but my surgeon swears that it's important for regaining erectile function. [For more information, refer to Use It or Lose It] I feel fine.
I can have an orgasm but not an erection, and have slight incontinence.
