Well, next week will be 1-year since my Simple Robotic Prostatectomy (SRP) procedure was performed. SRP is when robotics are used through the abdomen to shell out the prostate like an avocado (removal of mass). Access to the prostate is through the bladder. Bladder neck, sphincters, urethra, and nerve bundles are preserved. The prostate lobes are still intact. My situation was enlargement, not cancer.
I just had my 1-year follow up with the doctor yesterday and everything is great. He asked me how is it going and I responded that the garden hose he promised (and delivered) is still there and working wonderfully. Collectively I shared with him the following:
- No retro ejaculation.
- Erections are good.
- No incontinence.
- No urgency.
- If I get up at all during the night, it is once and done (most nights I sleep through the night).
- I void in a matter of seconds with great force.
- I drink whatever I want, whenever I want.
My wife and I still talk about the terrible summer I had last summer leading up to this procedure, but only as a reference point to how much better life is now. As always, I hope you are able to find your solution to your problem. If interested in more info, private message me and I would be glad to share.
