Re: "enhanced" emotional state after prostatectomy

Hey Jon,
I am 9 month post-op, never had any other treatments prior to robotic surgery, and have not noticed any hyper-sensitivity since.
In fact, I am a bit more impatient, ha ! But I noticed that BEFORE surgery, so chalk it up to lack of sleep, etc.
I was concerned, too, about anesthesia, but cannot identify any mental change.
If you are more sensitive, 1) it's not a bad thing, and 2) Could it be linked to some disappointments ? You could investigate that.

For me, despite all the good news, I am sad about losing function (without help), and starting to lose hope. How could that not affect mood a little from time to time ?

What ever you do, DONT WORRY, and move on, you have a lot of living to do !!
Paul.
