First Blog – My post-prostate surgery recovery begins

I live in Bali – in Ubud – its beautiful and interesting. That didn’t stop me getting prostate cancer. A small but aggressive (Gleason 9) cancer that had to be removed and was removed exactly one month ago in Perth. Now I’m back in Ubud and suffering the 2 main side-effects – incontinence and erectile dysfunction. Ubud is the home of all sorts of alternative (some wacko) treatments.  I’m skeptical about most of them.  But as well as the better known treatments (drugs, pumps, needles) I’m pretty much prepared to try anything – I’m certainly in the right place for it.  This blog is to let you know what works for me (and what doesn’t work); and to get feedback and ideas from other people on the prostate recovery journey.
