Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as prostate surgery — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
Have you had a Prostatectomy, a procedure in which the prostate is removed?
Possible responses:→ Don't know
→ Yes, partial prostatectomy
→ Yes, radical prostatectomy
Erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence are the two most frequently encountered consequences of radical prostatectomy. While the rate of postoperative urinary incontinence is quite low, the rate of ED is reported as being significantly higher, affecting 10% to 100% of patients. Since the development of nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy, the incidence of post-operative erectile dysfunction has decreased.
