post prostate surgery ejaculate

I had a radical prostatectomy in Sept. '07. I occasionally (but rarely) ejaculate during oral sex. What is it?

Re: post prostate surgery ejaculate

eddie, you should know that there is more to ejaculation than the prostate.
Check out 'vas deferens' and 'seminal vesicles' which also play a role in the
process of ejaculation.. And the testes can still produce sperm which is
also a small fraction of the total. Most comes from the seminal vesicles
unless they were removed as part of your prostatectomy.

Re: post prostate surgery ejaculate

Seminal vessicles are almost always removed during prostatectomy. The vas deferens (which does not produce any fluid on its own and is only the tube that carries sperm from the testis to the urethra) is cut off from the urethra during surgery. Although the testicles continue to produce sperm cells, these are microscopic and not liquid. They have no route left toward ejaculation and no access to the fluid formerly produced by the prostate and seminal vessicles to transport them even if they did. There are only two possibilities for the fluid you experience as ejaculation, which is possibly a combination of both sources. The first and most likely, especially if there is a significant volume, is urine. The nerves in the urinary sphincter that formerly shut off the urinary tract during sex are often affected by surgery and no longer perform that function. Also, the Cowper's glands are typically not affected by prostatectomy. They continue to produce the pre-ejaculatory fluid which during peak sexual excitement could accumulate and be expelled at the point of orgasm.
