Hi all , well im 14 months down the rd from my surgery my PSA is not registering so the future looks bright and im forever grateful for that..........But....... there is always a But!!
I am struggling with a side effect of Lymphedema, due to having 26 lymph nodes removed during the surgery. Its in my lower ab area and left leg and is limiting my mobility to say the least. the doc has given me compression pants to keep the swelling at bay but it getting to me now, any one else suffering with this complication at all?
One of my testicles was very swollen after surgery, i was told this was normal and would return to normal.....it didnt, it effectively died and has shrunk to about the quater of the size it once was. Again anyone else has anything like this?
Incontinence, still ongoing. Iv done the exercises, and even had a go with the anal electronic simulator and im still leaking. Just to really rub it in iv had a letter from my local NHS saying they will no longer provide me pads due to cost cutting as they consider i dont leak enough!!!! Not sure how thats worked out its not going anywhere else, im on 4-5 pads a day(grade 3 tena).
On the bright side, iv got glaucoma and cataracts..........but both under control and getting sorted and my erections have returned with the help of Viagra and Cialis although its probably the erections that buggered my eyesight up in the first place!!!!
Anyway, any advice , experience, opinions etc about the issues above with be gratefully received, sorry for the offload but i know you guys and girls can relate to how im feeling.
