My neighbor just had ihs catheter out yesterday. He's 72 and had robotic removal of prostate.
He seems to be doing fine physicaly but is really wet. I know I have been really lucky with my outcome (7 months) no incontenance and a slowly recocovering sexual function. My question is how can I help him with his recovery. Is there any good literature that I can get for him on this topic? I'm going to try to get him on this site but don't expect that that will happen.

especially the Kegel exercises. my leakage stopped after 3 months. went from 2-3 pads a day to 1-2 then one and now one. he doesnt have access to a computer? missing out on a lot of information then.

Tell your neighbor that it will get better. But to begin with he needs a truck load of your basic Depends. The are on the bulky side but 100% leakproof. When he regains some continence he can graduate to Attends briefs. A copy of "MAN TO MAN" Surviving Prostate Cancer by Michael Korda free from the library or $12 on Amazon could prove very helpful if he's reticent to join CSN. Keep us posted & good luck to him.
