Incontinence after Dr.Samadi surgery.

At the time when I searched for a surgeon to perform a prostate surgery I read an article in The Daily News about the radio talk show host and Guardian Angels leader Curtis Sliwa. His case was very complicated because he has been wounded many times in the abdomen, and Dr.Samadi performed the surgery on him, and he got back to work in 3 days.
I had my surgery in October 2011, here are some of my notes:

1. Before surgery, when IV has been installed on my left arm, the hair was not shaved of my arm, and before discharge the nurse had a problem removing a tube with a lot of tapes from the arm. It was painful.

2. After surgery, I felt pain but I thought it is usual and did not complain. However in the night my blood pressure showed over 180, I asked to give me Atenolol which was prescribed by my cardiologist for emergency. When I got home I started taking Tylenol, my blood pressure remained normal and I slept pretty much. I believe Tylenol should always be given to patents after surgery.
I appreciate Dr.Samadis care of my wife arranging a bed for her to stay with me over the night.

3. In Post Operative Instructions for Robotic Radical Prostatectomy in the section Catheter Care, should be added:
For catheter removal appointment, bring briefs and Mans Guard pad with you.

4.Now, 2 years after the surgery, Im still leaking with no hope for a normal life.
In the article at webmd.com:
There were lower rates of incontinence and erectile dysfunction with open surgery. The overall rate was 4.7% for laparoscopic surgery and 2.1% for open surgery.
Ive got in 4.7% unlucky patients.
I cannot go away from home more than 5 blocks, Mans guard gets full in minutes, I even use paper towels in addition. I have to stay close to facilities or, in the darkness, find a place between houses and be on alert, in a while I get stinky.

I read reviews on RateMDs.com, all of the former patients of Dr.Samadi are happy, they do not have incontinence after the catheter removed. Was my case(condition) exceptional? Ive never been aware of that, Dr.Samadi told me that my cancer was local, no metastasis. At the appointment before the surgery, Dr.Samadi told me he will perform a surgery himself. I have very strong believe that one of Dr.Samadis residents practiced on me. You cannot know certainly when you are unconscious under anesthesia.
Does Curtis Sliwa have the same problem having so many injuries? How does he run his talk show for many hours?

It's simple. He's the best. He understands the patient's fears and what this type of surgery means to a man. He puts you at ease. I never once thought that I would have anything but a positive outcome. The man is truly blessed.
