The surgery you are referring to is a radical postatectomy for postatectomy cancer. The procedure you need is a TURP (transurethral resection of prostate) and all urologists perorm this without damaging the nerves that provide continence and erections. The risk of these problems after a TURP are less than 1% for incontinence and 5% for erectile problems. Hope this helps.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
