Three weeks ago, I had a prostate biopsy as well as a urethrotomy to open up a urethral stricture. I am pleased to say that the biopsy results all came back benign and the urethrotomy seems to have worked well too. However, since then, I have definitely noticed a decrease in my ability to achieve a full erection and then maintain it for any amount of time. Furthermore -- and please forgive the details here -- the volume of my ejaculate has also decreased significantly since the two procedures. I am just wondering if these types of symptoms are common among those who have had prostate biopsies, and whether things will evenutally get back to normal on their own after a certain amount of time? I can only assume that taking 12 needle biopsy samples could understandably screw things up for a while, but, does everything "grow back" together and start producing semen the way it used to? Also, I do have to perform daily self catheterization for quite a while to keep the stricutre open, so, maybe that has an impact on things as well? Any experience or advice would be greatly appreciated. Urologist wasn't very helpful.
