Assuming the gap where the prostate existed pre-surgery eventually has other organs that squish in to fill the empty space, what happens to any nerves that were hopefully spared? That is, do they just float around? Or does the surgeon tuck them away?
I am fully fucntional and still pulling zeros 3.4 years past DaVinci except that the need to awake and pee throughout the night is as intense if not more so, than when I had a prostate. How can this be?
Occaisonally due to sports related joint pain, I take an 800mg Motrin which makes the urges subside dramatically. But due to my urologist's warning about kidney damage from Motrin I don't take them nightly like I used to--just when the joint pain is unbearable.
