DoubleDigitDick: Here are some clips from this article as Yahoo News: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tm...51&e=1&u=/nm/20030326/hl_nm/prostate_penis_dc "Researchers ... found that men who underwent prostate-removal surgery, known as prostatectomy, experienced a slight decrease in the size of their flaccid and stretched penis." " ... in 20 percent of the study participants, penile length decreased by at least 15 percent. " "Many study participants also reported a marked decrease in sexual functioning after prostatectomy." "While 92 percent of patients prior to surgery reported being able to achieve an erection, only 33 percent retained that ability three months later." "This marked impotence following surgery may, in part, explain the concurrent decrease in penis size, Soloway suggested -- with lack of use, the penis may shorten." "Could knowing that prostatectomy may decrease penis size inspire some men to forgo the potentially life-saving operation?"
