After searching for a solution and qualified surgeon, I will have the operation on Oct 6 in Seattle at Swedish Medical. I've read a fair amount including Dr Walsh's book but I would like input from those that have had the procedure on what to expect immediately post surgery - like Day 1, Day 2... to the point of catheter removal.
I am 58, fit, no prior ED issues, Gleason 6, PSA 2.9 and 7/12 samples positive from 5% - 40%. Classified as T1C Stage 1. Prostate is enlarged but no tumors felt with DRE. On blood thinners for artifical mitral valve put in over 10 yrs ago. Will go of blood thinners today in prep for surgery.
What was your experience and what worked for you to manage it.
Thanks for any input.
