My husband has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He goes back to urologist tomorrow to be booked into hospital to have surgery. Our brains feel a bit scrambled at the moment. We are both scared but looking on the positive side. Concerned about incontinence and can't find a lot on the subject. Just basic things like what kind of pads to wear etc. Has anyone had the radical surgery and what happens after the operation. All advice would be so welcome.
I sat down and wrote a long response to you on Sunday night and posted it - I do not know what happened to it.
I explained all about the alternatives to surgery, questions you needed ask, what information you needed. I stressed that you did not have to rush and before you saw the urologist on Monday there was important information you needed to know.
I guess it is all a bit late now and you are probably booked for surgery.
Go to the http://www.prostatehealth.org.au website - it is all evidence based material, and the links are carefully checked. You will find all the answers you need there.
I will be checking with the moderators of this site as to what happened to my post as it was there and I later copied and pasted some material from it to another posting.

I think this was the quote I put at the end of the posting.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
