Pierre and Gareth, so glad to be hearing the voices of younger men in this group. If I have understood correctly you both had RP in your 40s and I love the way you stand up for the importance of healthy sex lives! How are you getting on Gareth? I find most doctors treat our sexual function as an on/off thing when actually the experience is generally a gradual, stop-start, bumpy path towards the new normal.
In response to Pierre's latest post about missing ejaculate - yes, and I am still grateful to have gotten rid of cancer and this seems a relatively small price to pay. You are right about it being weird not ejaculating and I miss that visible and tactile expression of my climax. Another aspect is that my genitals have smelt different since there were no more sexual fluids - wondering if others noticed this?
The good news for me is that at 15 months after RARP, I am sometimes able to get fully hard without any chemical or mechanical aids, although I am still pumping regularly to build up resilience.
And on the fluids - I am beginning to produce small amounts of sexual fluid again. I am pretty sure it is pre-cum, in other words produced by Cowper's glands which connect with the urethra below the part that was cut out. It definitely helps with the "dry" missing feeling @Pierre71 mentions. And it shifts the smell into more of a familiar sexual smell rather than the urine smell that dominated for the last year.
How about other men - any sign of precum fluids after surgery?
