This will probably be my last post here, for a while, after a very successful operation. I've posted before at 2, 4 and 8 weeks about my progress and thought I would finish off my last report now that I am relieved of all my pre op symptons. I did say at the 4 to 8 weeks I had urgency which meant I had only about 10 secs to get to a loo and I was caught out a few times which having had a ruptured achilles at about 5 weeks didnt help my speed at getting to a toilet. I've read about the urgency so although a bit peturbing I knew it was tempory so soldiered on and during the last two weeks it has completely gone. I can sit here watching tv with an urge and delay it for another 15 minutes, no problem.
With this op,, I had no pain at any point, no clots but a bit pink for 10 days, no pills anymore, can pee 300 mlitres in 10 seconds compared to 100 mlitre in a min before.
No retention at night and so can sleep through til 7am. Much to my amazement I am ejeculating, not much as I suppose 70% of the prostate is missing now, BUT, the orgasm I'm having is like the real thing which I've not had for some 13 years because of the pills drying me up.
I knew I had a big chance of BE so guess I am lucky and more importantly had a good consultant with modern kit.
Not having to get up all night is the thing I like most about this op and not having to take the two pills is good too. I have been reading that Dutasteride may be causing non alcoholic fatty liver. having said that the pills buy one time whilst deciding what to do , but I wished I had had this op sooner.
In the scheme of things it's ealry doors but am as confident as one can be that the results will be long lasting.
