A personal experience:


My husband [55-year-old white male], had an RRP at Johns Hopkins late October 2002. Five months later he is still continent, just about regained full sexual functioning, and has no decrease in penis size.

I will add, however, that he had no surgical complications other than a catheter that didn't want to come out, he was in excellent shape prior to surgery, and he worked to get back into shape after surgery by walking as much as possible. In addition, he was urged to use Viagra and a VED as soon as his five week surgical recovery was finished. He found that using the VED, then Viagra seemed to be the best way to get blood flow going. He attributes his recovery to using the VED/Viagra several times a week.

He could definitely tell he took a major step backward when he didn't use the VED/Viagra fairly frequently.
