24/01/12 2 1 1 1 Before the surgery he spent as much time as I needed for him to convince me that the surgery was the best way to go. Right after the surgery he said it was a tremendous success but I've had complications ever since and each time I'd book an appointment with him to discuss it, I found the wait time to be extensive and he was completely dismissive of my concerns. I feel like he destroyed my life: after nearly a year following the surgery I still suffer from incontinence and ED. If that's success I'd hate to see what failure looks like. A word of advice to anyone considering prostate removal: check out the doctor COMPLETELY before going under the knife.
