I was diagnosed last January and had the same dilemma in choosing the method of treatment. I elected the surgery and have never had a regrett. The pain associated with the surgery was "minimal" as far as surgery goes, and within 6-months following surgery I was at what I would consider my pre-surgery condition.

I have had no continence problems at all and have not suffered from ED. Enjoyment from sex is as gratifying as pre-surgery.

Please contact me if you have any questions, but if I had it to do all over again I would certainly elect for the prostatectomy.
