Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
Since having my prostate removed (not cancer but nearly), my penis in its flacid state is getting very small and I wondered why. I still get erections and I think the orginal size of the erection is the same. I am 69 years old.
What kind of prostate surgery or procedure did you have? It appears that the penis does shrink after radical prostatectomy. It is unclear as to why.
You may wish to consider using a vacuum pump daily or sildenafil daily to maintain length.
