Surgery is the best strategy for managing prostate cancer, and the majorly used technique is prostatectomy. Many men prefer the method because it does not affect nerve endings and allows them to have a normal sexual life. Prostatectomy, just like other invasive surgeries, has its risks. One risk of prostatectomy is using deep venous thrombosis. Deep venous thrombosis arises when blood flows slowly, leading to blood clots in the legs. However, the occurrence of deep venous thrombosis is rare, and patients are less likely to develop it if they walk after they are conscious. Movement increases blood flow, and this reduces the chances of having deep venous thrombosis. Another risk is urinary incontinence. Patients undergoing prostatectomy have high chances of having leaking urine, but this is immediately after surgery. However, studies show that urinary incontinence is a short-term problem and that it mostly affects older people and people with large prostates. Bratu et al. (2017) say that another risk is erectile dysfunction, and this is a risk that many people with prostate cancer face. These risks that can affect the implementation of prostatectomy are manageable, and therefore, they will not hinder the implementation of the surgery in managing prostate cancer.
