When I chose da vinci surgery to treat my prostate cancer, my wife and I had no idea how surgery would affect my life and our marriage. Brenda & I were not prepared for the short term and long term issues we'd face. Here's a sample of some of the issues covered in our book:
* How to break the news to your friends and family.
* When a one day hospital stay is not long enough.
* What are bladder spasms and how you get relief.
* How a simple mistake could cost you thousands of dollars.
* How erectile dysfunction will affect you and your relationships.
* What's penile rehabilitation, and why you need it.
* Why you may experience a severe post-surgical depression
* How your faith makes a difference coping with prostate cancer.
* How the "expectation gap" can alienate you from friends
Prostate surgery alters a man’s emotional, relational, sexual and spiritual identity. These changes can seriously weaken the bonds of his most intimate relationships. My wife and I combined our personal experiences with prostate cancer and our professional training in order to bring knowledge, insight and hope to couples struggling with the permanent emotional and physical changes that occur following prostate surgery. It’s our goal to help couples grow stronger in their faith and in their most important relationships.
If you are thinking about surgery to treat your prostate cancer, or had surgery, I Left My Prostate in San Francisco-Where's Yours? will be the most helpful book you'll read all year.
