 50% Men Feel Worse After Removal of Prostate Gland

50% men who have undergone removal of prostate gland claim to feel worse after the surgery. Even then 75% of them said that they would undergo prostatectomy if they were placed in a similar situation again.

236 men who were part of the study were questioned about how they felt after their prostatectomy. It was found that 3 out of 4 had regained their physical and mental well-being and had no more problems with urinary incontinence than before the operation. But only 1 out of 4 had recovered his ability to have sexual intercourse.

Researchers found that men were more likely to get their quality of life back if they had undergone a kind of surgery which does not affect the nerves that control erection and if they had participated in a rehabilitation program like talk therapy or a drug regimen for treating erectile dysfunction.
