The Clinical Takeaway: Life After Prostatectomy


The Clinical Takeaway: Life After Prostatectomy



In this episode:


– The diagnosis of prostate cancer can be overwhelming, leading patients to rush into surgery without considering the long term consequences of surgical treatment.
– Most patients will survive prostate cancer but up to 70% report significant adverse impacts on quality of life post-surgery.
– After surgery, a team is needed to care for them: a GP, a physiotherapist to manage urinary incontinence, a specialist to attend to the prevention of erectile dysfunction and a psychologist to manage issues that may arise.
