I know this site is very useful for so many and that there are lots of people struggling with the challenges that a diagnosis can bring but I wanted to at least provide some hope to people new to the site and worried about treatment that it might not be as bad as you imagine. One of the things with the site ( and its just the way it is) is that if you have had your treatment and things have all worked out then there isn't the same need to be on here so views can get distorted.
I will be 6 months on from my radical prostectomy on Monday. An operation I was dreading.
So how's life now
I've been dry for months and months and its just not an issue. As a plus my flow has improved considerably- pee more like I did as a teenager LOL
Sex wise - I occasional take 50mg of viagra to help things along and erections are not quite as firm as they were but its all getting better each month and not really a concern. As I knew, there is no ejaculate without a prostate-slightly odd- but nobody has to sleep on the wet patch and orgasms are actually pretty good
Got a scar from the open surgery but no big deal and been back on the bike for the last 3-4 months with no issues at all
PSA undetectable. It will be monitored for a few years but I've no reason to expect to have a problem ( if I do, I'll deal with it then)

Good luck to all- whether you are coming to terms with a diagnosis, dealing with the challenges it presents or recovering from treatment.
