    I had a radical prostatectomy and my dick is much shorter. I think it may be due to the cutting and rejoining of the euretha. I hadn't heard of this effect on those undergoing radiation treatment.
    No one discusses this problem prior to treatment. They seem to focus on erectile disfunction.
    PS Had a very well hung friend who had the same procedure and his length is also less !

    The problem is the alternative.

    My dad's prostate cancer went undetected until it had spread to his bones.

    The hormone treatment to slow it has stopped working, his pain medication has been increased, and it has been suggested that he should get his affairs in order.....

    I can speak from experience having had the surgery in 2002. It was that or be dead in 8 months (I had a fast-growing type---5&#37;). Yes, it is much shorter, much less in girth and had I not had an implant, it would be useless. Young men, check your PSA every year after you are 40 or 45. I missed ONE year (2001) and look what happened. I look at this site to see what used to be and it is very frustrating...the alternative (death) is worse, I suppose, but I would rather be like I used to be.
