      Dave - Susan -Arman and all the other recent posters. As I read the post my short term memory issues cloud a lot of the issues that have been recently mentioned. I also after four years after had a slight weight gain and thinning of my hair. It was a PA that noticed a few pounds a year in gain and thinning of my hair and suggest I get my thyroid checked. She was right and I now tak...

        Susan or Arman I was going to go back to read the original postings from Kevin before, but was his cancer also HPV related? Mine cancer was HPV related. I remember some of his post that he was really anxious, stressed or depressed. I believe he thought early on when the cancer came back he was going to die. Wonder if he knew more than he actually admitted. Kind of an intuition feeling. lardog

            Arman Thank you for letting us all know what happen to this thread and why we did not get any notices of new messages. Very sad ending to this thread. I personally think that hearing of someone passing as Kevin's, is good for us all to hear and remind us to be the best person we can be while we are here on earth. I know of several people in the local SPONHC chapter that have also passed away in the last two y...

              delawaresace I would encourage you to look at several threads on this subject. You should also go get a second opinion. As with any subject everyone has an opinion, but you must make your own decision. I have written about my treatment in previous posts but also there is another website that you can search. It is the SPOHNC which has many local chapters across the country. This group is a cancer survivor...

                If I remember correctly there are four sphincters on your penis. But I doubt. Most men as they get older have slow flow problems. With a prostatectomy the prostrate is removed and therefore there is little or no restriction as the gladder is tied directly to the urethra. No, but I did have pretty quick flow after surgery and still due. Just make the trips to the bath room shorter.

                  You said it is only ten weeks. I quit wearing the pads after seven days, a few hours before my inspection by the Doctor after surgery. But the feeling or urge to go will stay with you for maybe a year. Mine was a little longer maybe but around that time. To this day I go the bathroom much more often than before and when it seems real urgent about half the volume is released as compared to post surgery. I think i...

                    A few things first. Yes, Kegels do help immensely, but doctors make a world of difference. Not that you can change that now. First let us know when and what you are doing when you leak, or do you leak all the time. For instance I leaked the first time when I stepped out of the shower the second night and blew my nose. I found out it did not happen when sitting. So, I changed my timing. Still today twelve year...
