Erectile dysfunction is a potential side effect of radical prostatectomy but a program of rehab before and after surgery may improve sexual function.  See the SEXUAL REHABILITATION flyer below.

Treating Urinary Incontinence

Pelvic floor exercises both before and after surgery will strengthen the pelvic floor and assist with urinary control.  See the flyer on PELVIC FLOOR EXERCISES below. If the incontinence persists for over a year and is severe enough an artificial urinary sphincter may be needed.  

Reduce Side Effects of Anti-Androgens

Anti-androgen medications Eligard and Lupron have side effects.  Read the flyer on MINIMIZING SIDE EFFECTS OF ANTI-ANDROGEN MEDICATIONS below.

Genetic Testing

About 10% of prostate cancers have a genetic component.  Men who have a family history of prostate, breast, pancreatic or ovarian cancer should consider being tested for the genetic trait. Read the flyer on GENETIC TESTING below.

Treating Erectile Dysfunction

After following a sexual rehabilitation program and allowing time for the nerves to heal,  if erections do not return to pre-surgery levels there are options for treating erectile dysfunction. See the flyer on ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION below.

Free Exercise Program

Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas offers a free 16 week exercise program for patients diagnosed with cancer.  This can be started before surgery or after surgery.  For more information see FREE EXERCISE PROGRAM below.

Prostate Cancer Screening

Men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer become very knowledgeable about the disease and can share this important information with other men.  The importance of early detection is key.  See and share the PROSTATE CANCER SCREENING flyer.
