I had a radical prostectamy 2 years ago and also some lymph nodes were cut. In 2 years i have put on 45 pounds and can't seem to lose it. I weight train 2 days a week and also do cardio the other days. Whenever I do high intensity workouts I tend to get nauseous. I am stronger than ever but I just can't build up the stamina necessary for high intensity workouts. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you deal with it? Thank you for any help!View Thread
Romel. I was 50 when I had my surgery. My PSA was 9. No cancer was found outside the prostate. The reason I had my lymph nodes removed because the cancer was on the edge of the prostate. The main problems I had after surgery were some bad gas pains because of air pumped in my stomach during surgery. I dealt with some painkillers. I some hot flashes, a urinary tract infection and not able to achieve an erection. I then did follow radiation later on as a precaution. My spa now is 0.04. While these were all inconvienant along with the weight gain because my metabolism is messed up I would do it again. I am still alive which is the main things.View Thread
