Good Morning Skin
Sorry for you being your here
I had a RP Operation last year December, same as you even more than you ! I had no idea about Magic words or Prostate, 3+4=7 ,cathere, incontinence,,endless trips night times the the bathroom, pads, medicines, ED,dry orgasm, pumbs etc.
I live on my own with help of friends I lived day by day passed difficult periods of Christmas ,New year etc.I have no relatives in the UK and immediate family members all passed away anyway .
When you are on your own its hard.really hard,even when you try to communicate with good helpful people here they misunderstood you some ways kinda cynical feelings I passed them on.
I had met with a nurse last year October she told me that she is my key nurse but since than that she blew my head with a cancer news I have heard nothing from her at all.f...all !
Counselling I did not needed really You can get on this website better support than in your local magie s or citizen advice bureau etc.
I'm a positive guy but a bit softie I bothered good people from here with my little issues, such as pain on my tummy (answer were REST.REST.AND RESPECT FOR YOUR BODY)
I'm a generally a positive guy, I like laugh jokes out door life ,animals,meeting with new people etc.but after the operation I thought I was going to die I was in massive pain .so with help of people from here those hard days are gone but still not over yet.
There are great people here I'm sure they will write to you Lynn,Cheshire Chris ,Bollinger, Amazon7 ,etc They are really really great supporting people They helped me emotionally more than my Key nurse more than my gorgeous GP.
Stay on this website and ask any thing even for a little thing please ask.Im sure they would respond you and help you to get through hard times.
May I ask you This do you live on your own?
Do you have close friends whom can help you with shopping etc.remember that after the operation you won't be able to lifting a pint of milk for couple of weeks.
Catheter is horrible thing but that's the journey we all have to go through I'm sorry.
Not being nosey but if your financially OK or have a health insurance etc try to get the operation treatment at a private clinic .
I was offered first at the London clinic that is based near baker st.but than had the operation at a NHS hospital. Wasn't my choice to change the venue .
Anyway as I mentioned previously I had and still have no idea about prostates operations terms and technical words. I learned what I know all from here with help of great people from here whom tirelessly spending their times on here just to advise people like you and me.
Once Cheshire Chris said..Remember this you had a major surgery it's a marathon not a sprint
So do walk- exercise as much as you can but when you get pains stop and respect for your body.
I live on my own so I do food shopping my self but couple of weeks ago I couldn't carry a shopping bag that contained 3 kilogram weights than on here Lynn said..
Do your little shopping more than once do shopping as little as possible your local shop keeper will love you :)
Or others asked me to get a bucket to keep it night time beside my bed so I could place the night bag in it.
Get a fleeced type of track buttom, dressing gown etc.whilst you have a catheter that is attached to your body it would be easy to walk in and around your house,flat.
Ohhh from my own experience if you decide to go ahead with RP operation make sure that after the operation 3-4 hours after that ask the nurses medical staff if they could make you walk .I'm sure they could try to make you walk .but if they don't please ask them to get you off the bed and help for walking. Its about blood cladding thing.
Injections on your legs easy. I had to do it 28 days.
Make sure indoors 1m paracetamol and Iburphone.
I was discharged from the hospital they didn't give me them medicines but I was asked to get them from the community but where the F...! I could find them on a December cold dark late evening in london whilst a catheter bag attached to my leg after a major surgery !
I was forced rushes to get RP operation by medical staff.Im not an expert at all but If they can cure you with RT so go ahead with it because at least you can always change your mind.
my self after the RP Operation early December still I'm not allowed to lift anything even a pint of milk so it's so annoying painful I wish that I hadn't go ahead really. I was not suffering badly All I said to my gorgeous GP I'm having a feelings that I don't fully empty my bladder .so my gorgeous hot GP she advised me to MRI that came out with a malignancy something than biopsy came out with a cancer. To be honest I don't want ro live until age of 80 anyway why the hell I had to go through and still going troubles...SEX life is over totally f....k up.
Dry orgasm is so weird.feel like no man anymore
Erection...what is that!!!
Have to relay on viagra,cialis,pump etc.so my body will become a chemical warehouse.
And from now on bum squeeze exercise will be our regular activities rest of our lives .
Please do not compare your self with me and with anybody. We all different. And ...Maccmillansa at university college of London branch seems helpful for any kind of enquires
Ps.No More Kama Sutra for me ..Well not yet or too soon but Hopefully for you yes.
