I would like to hear specifically from people having gone through this procedure, as to their ability to have an erection.

It's now been 2 years since my RP "nerve sparing" surgery, and I put that in quotes since I have no been able to have a natural erection since. I can have an erection with Trimix or Quadmix injections, and I have tips on that if anyone is interested. I'd just like to know, does anyone actually retain the ability to have a natural erection after this procedure? I was 58, hard erections before surgery, minimal cancer, non-smoker, exercised regularly, etc, so I should have been a good case for recovery, but, no.

Im 64, and at 10 months post surgery. With help from pills, pump and ring am having some success. My quote; "ever try pushing a rope"

I was 47 when I had my surgery. For the first year nothing,then gradually with the help of injections and pills it started to return. Now I don’t have to use anything and sometimes it’s pretty good and other times just okay. I am 63 now and I’m going to have to get radiation so who knows.

I was diagnosed with an aggressive but confined prostate cancer and went the surgery route. After 6 months of daily low dose Viagra I was able to stop drug and things worked well for quite a few years. At one point my post-op PSA tests began to rise and I needed additional treatments --- radiation and hormone therapy.
Again things were ok for several years but past treatments eventually catch up with you. At age 78 life my life is good and I am now rolling along with the many ups and downs life offers . Dennis(ProstateCancer.net)
