Recovering From Impotency Due To A Prostatectomy

Before opting for a prostatectomy most patients and doctors will first try to opt for treating prostate cancer with drugs, radiotherapy or chemotherapy. This is of course entirely determined by the severity of the cancer and the tumours that are present in the prostate gland. The reason for this is because of the numerous side effects of the removal of the prostate gland two of which can be incontinence and impotence.

The good news is that even if your prostate cancer is untreatable and a prostatectomy your only choice, there are cures for both impotence and incontinence. Incontinence experienced as a result of the removal of the prostate gland is usually partial and normally clears up on its own within a few weeks of the procedure. However, treating the resulting impotence can take much longer.

There are many different ways in which this type of impotence can be treated. One of the best ways that is the preferred choice of many doctors and patients alike is with the use of a vacuum pump. A vacuum pump is non-invasive and has no side effects like many impotency drugs that are available on the market.

A vacuum pump makes it possible for a prostatectomy patient to enjoy intimacy shortly after recovery from the procedure. The long term effects of using a vacuum pump can also result in the patient experiencing spontaneous arousal without the use of the vacuum pump in the future. You will also not require a prescription from your doctor for the use of a vacuum pump. The use of a vacuum pump in conjunction with other therapies available from your doctor can speed up the recovery process from impotency due to a prostatectomy.
