You'll be fine. Even with nerve damage or loss you most likely will have feeling it's just that your nerves may no longer be able to tell your dick get erect. Oh wait, you already have that eventuality covered.
R.R.P 2011 Mayo Jacksonville, Dr. Michael Wehle. Nerve sparing - badly damaged. C in margin. V.E.D, Viagra and PGE-1 (80mcg/ml) injections @ ~ 12 units. Originally Edex20, then compounded PGE-1 - cost. Inject. ~ 8 yrs. It works. Treasure coast of FL.
Good luck, had the same robotic surgery 2 1/2 years ago with the same gleason score. Have had 2 years of 0 psa on checkups and no issues except for no erections with out using trimix. I am one of the unlucky ones that gets substantial pain with Trimix and am considering an implant. I was 66 when I had the surgery and it was pretty much a piece of cake. Just be positive and behave yourself during recovery.
Best wishes. You are well ahead of those of us who lost size and knew nothing about implants when our prostates were hacked out. Far far ahead of us. Heal well buddy.
