Dating after radical prostatectomy

Lepor said he and his colleagues were "a bit surprised" by how common sexual incontinence was in their study.

"I think it's something that those of us who perform radical prostatectomy should be aware of in terms of counseling our patients, and also in terms of finding ways to treat this if it ends up being a problem," he said.

Now, almost 2 years later, I'm not going to say, "Thank god they caught it in time... Blah blah blah blah." No, what I'm thinking is more along the lines of: I want my prostate back. The size of a golf ball, it's tucked away under your bladder, biding its time until you and your reproductive system decide to emit the sacred seed.

Surgery can help relieve incontinence in some men who develop the problem after prostate removal.

So, too, may exercises that strengthen the pelvic muscles, although the benefits of such rehabilitation are unproven, Flesher noted.

The findings, published in the Journal of Urology, suggest urination issues may be a bigger deal than suggested by earlier studies.

Last May, another urology group reported that only one in 20 men said they were significantly bothered by incontinence a year or more after prostate surgery.

Whether the discrepancy is due to questionnaire differences or other factors is unclear.
