Men are not always aware of the sexual changes that can occur after radical prostatectomy, Turkish and American researchers report.
Their study, published last month in BJUI International, involved 336 men who completed a questionnaire. All of the men had undergone either open prostatectomy (RP - 216 men) or robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP - 120 men). The participants' mean age was 64 years.
Overall knowledge of sexual function after surgery was poor, especially for RALP patients. Seventy percent of RP patients and 60% of RALP patients knew they could have anejaculation. Most patients did not know they could have orgasm changes, climacturia, loss of penile length, or Peyronie's disease.
Urologists should consider patient education before surgery, the authors suggested.
