I'm a 63 white male. I had my prostate removed 6 years ago by robotic surgery at a top hospital. At the same time my wife had terminal cancer so we were never intimate after my surgery. I just met someone and I have tried several times having intercourse and took Viagra before. Unfortunately the results weren't that great in that I didn't get a very hard erection. Do I need a different medication or should I be more patient? ThanksView Thread

I am 51 years old and I was diagnosed with stage II prostate cancer back in late February. I have pondered my options as to how I was going to treat my cancer. I shied away from having surgery because I the side effects of incontinence and not wanting to have to go around with a catheter. I was going to have brachy therapy but that would make me radioactive for 6 months and I didn't want people around me to be exposed to the radiation I would be emitting especially people who are in close proximity to me. So I opted to be part of a study, and go for 44 treatments of radiation but then I thought what if later on in life my cancer metastasizes and comes back worse than before? Then prostate surgery would not be an option. So I have made up my mind to have the surgery, but I thought I would only be off work for a week to recuperate. I have learned I will be off work 4 to 6 weeks. How does one manage without being able to make an income that long. The bills will surely come in, and my spouse doesn't make enough to cover our expenses. Are there any resources out there to help people who cannot work, or is there some kind of work you can until you return to your regular job? My job requires me to work outdoors where I am in neighborhoods, and I cannot go into people's homes even to use a restroom. I dread that I won't be able to hold my bladder once I have had surgery. Have those of you that have had prostate surgery, have your symptoms improved over time? How has your life changed since having prostate surgery?View Thread
