I am 15 months post-op. I was able to stop the pads at 7 months. I will still leak occasionally if I move suddenly, or if I'm very relaxed. Still completely impotent, and that's frustrating, but I've about accepted that it will be that way. It was good to hear that Liane's husband is showing improvement after 24 months...that gives me some hope. I had some damage from using injections for about 3 months, so it's made the impotence recovery more difficult, if at all possible. I'm seeing an ED specialist, and he said that if there isn't at least some sign of erections after 12 months, then it becomes significantly less likely that they will return. Good luck.

I also had some stricture problems and had to self-cath until about 6.5 months after my surgery. Then things got a lot better - following a 'filliform and follower' proceure my urologist tried. I stopped all pads about that time also and while I empty with a thin stream and it takes 3-4 minutes to get completely empty, I'm satisfied with that. I don't forsee any more procedures for urination.

I regained erections without really any meds - at about 7 or 8 months post-op. I tried maybe 3 or 4 Cialis doses but I didn't like the nasal congestion side-effect which made my snoring much worse.

As I approach one year since my surgery (7/25/05) I have had two < .01 PSA's.......the next test will be September.
Hi 3 months
I had robotic 5 months ago. You seem to be doing OK. I had severe incontinence after foley was removed. Drastic improvement at end of 4TH month. Sometimes go without a pad. Like to use one in case. Leak sometimes when passing gas or when I'm tired. Hope for big improvement soon but maybe not from all I've read. Impotent. Yes. Shrunk almost to nothing when foley was removed. Had a time with that. Got a vacuum pump and used it 2 or 3 times a day starting 2nd month. Helped tremendously. Trying pills now. Viagre/ Cialis/ Levitra. Plumps it up but hope for more later. With the two, I look and feel like I used to. Just no erection. Time should improve all. We have to keep working on it and wait it out.
