It’s now the day after Christmas. I would say most of my post-operative pain is gone.
Next week they said I could resume exercising. Because the weather’s cold it might be a weekend before I try riding my bike, but I’ll probably resume strength training anyway.
So I’d say most of my short-term post-operative problems have cleared up.
My incontinence is mostly limited to small leaks which mostly happen when I’m standing with either an almost empty or overfull bladder. Anything in between I seem to be able to hold without conciseness effort. If my bladder gets too full then I leak in any position. “Too full” doesn’t really mean much. Starting next week I may try holding more in to try to increase the capacity.
The other long-term problem I face is even more delicate a subject than incontinence and that is impotence. Right now I am unable to get an erection, although my libido is returning to normal. That’s kind of frustrating. They say that will come back over a period of 3 months to a year.
