I had LRP 16 days ago at age 46 (Gleason 7). At day 5 I had my catheter removed (erections worked yeah). The stream was weak and just got weaker (and painfull). Two days later I had to have the catheter reinstalled via a scope and wire - very painfull. I still have the catheter installed, due to have it removed next week (12 days installed the second time). Any one else have a similar experience and want to share the outcome?
Another issue is that I had the surgery in Cleveland and I live in SF bay area. I tried several local doctors to help with case but they all say I need to go back to see my surgon. If I do end up with it closing again, I want a good local doctor to help. I picked the doctor because he was the only one confident about saving my nerves and getting the cancer. Plus his team has done 1000s LRPs. Any suggestions?
