What to do about prostatectomy, how long untill I can get an erection if the nerves were spared and why so long a recovery.?
Here are some ...: What you referred to is radical prostatectomy (RP) for prostate cancer (P-Ca), which can be done with nerve-sparing techniques, but not always resulting in the outcome as commonly wished due to multiple intraoperative factors such as surgeon's proficiency and anatomical variations. As a result, inevitable direct or indirect injury to pudendal nerve & vessels may occur. ...Read more

How long before returning to school? I am currrently looking into having a nose sugery. I was wondering how long will I have to stay home after having it done. When will i be able to return to school?
Usually : Usually you will have an external splint on your nose afterwards which is removed at one week. I typically tell patients that this is when they will be "ready for public viewing" in terms of swelling and bruising. There will still be some swelling that masks the final result but if anything the nose should look somewhere between where it started and where you want it to end up. Most of the issues (bumps, tip size) should be slightly to moderately improved at this point but still look fairly natural. The nose will continue to improve in appearance for up to a year, so patience is definitely required before assessing the "final" result. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
