Welcome to the Where Is Your Prostate website, where award winning authors, Rick & Brenda Redner bridge the gap between fear and information. Rick was diagnosed with prostate cancer at age fifty-seven. His prostate was removed via robotic surgery. Both nerves were spared, and the couple was assured that Rick would recover his erectile functioning.
After prostate surgery, Rick & Brenda struggled for years coping with quality of life issues they were totally unprepared to face as individuals, and as a couple. As a result of their experiences and the suffering they endured, they became a couple on a mission. Their goal was to reach out to the hundreds of thousands of men and couples who are faced with a diagnosis of prostate cancer, choose surgery, and then find themselves alone and isolated as they cope with life and love without a prostate. They wrote their awarding winning book " I Left My Prostate In San Franciso-Where's Yours?" in order to help men and couples cope with the devastating diagnosis of prostate cancer and life before and after prostate surgery.
This website was created to be the gateway to the information and support Rick and Brenda believe you'll need to assist you on the difficult journey of adjusting to the many quality of life issues men and couples experience before and after prostate surgery. This site offers both a Pre-surgery Forum, and a Post-surgery Forum.
Four years after his prostate surgery Rick was given the devastating news he'd be impotent for the rest of his life. Months later, he stumbled on a procedure called "penile implant surgery." He searched for books written for men and couples about this procedure, only to discover there weren't any.
Rick added an Erectile Dysfunction & Penile Implant Forum to this website. Spend some time here reading about the things you'll want to know about living with prostate cancer, dealing with the loss of urinary control, coping with erectile dysfunction, and learning to live and love without a prostate. Don't forget to check out both of their books while you're here.
