I am fortunate enough to be semi-retired and able to spend recovery time in sunnier climes, so exercise is no problem, but I wish the mental disturbance was not happening.
Incontinence has all but cleared in the 12 weeks since removal, (apart from sneezing, laughing and passing wind), but at the time I was advisd nerve sparing may not be possible due to enlargement. Despite bladder neck reconstruction I was lucky, but erectile function is only just beginning to happen, but not when required/desired, and nothing useful!
As I was on 4 Blue pills a month, the doctor changed those to 20mg Tamsilosin without a problem, and i have split those down to take 5mg daily for just over a week now.
To be honest the hospital side has left much to be desired.
My release notes did not include anything about the reconstruction (and my Doctors notes also lack thát information), and I was discharged with 2 weeks supplies and notes to have catheter removed, only to be told later I had to wait 3 weeks, and change all my plans. On top of that my 12 week appointment was cancelled last minute and I am still waiting...
Earlier today I had a call from the Phamácy saying they could not issue daily low dose tablets because Nice recommendation had been withdrawn as there was no evidence it helped, but if the consultant issued a letter they would reconsider. blah blah blah and appologies!
So tomorrow I will contact his secretary who is in another hospital (and authority) where he is based. Not taking this lying down, as all I have read says that early action gives the best opportunity for recovery from this situation.
