Good job, At first I thought they were going to try and make you out to be a weirdo, but they presented it in a respectable manner. I recorded it, but I fast forwarded through first part with the fat lady.Animus, that was a really excellent segment! I thought you really presented yourself well, and gave a really clear description of POIS. And, even though your surgical solution was somewhat unusual, you gave a pretty typical account of POIS, and I think any POIS sufferer would be able to relate to it.
I had one question, though: in the episode, it seemed to indicate that your surgery had completely cured you of POIS. But, I thought you've said that while it did help with some symptoms, some other symptoms still remain. Did TLC just present it as a 'full cure' for the sake of a better TV ending?
No, I am completely POIS free. You might be thinking of a statement I made about having POIS even after the removal of the testicles. But after the subsequent operation for dry ejaculation I became completely POIS free.
It requires maintenance. The surgeries removed all but the prostate- so it's still possible to create some seminal fluid. What I'm doing is shrinking the prostate as much as possible with medication. I find if I go off these medications, I will have some mild return of POIS symptoms- but much milder and less threatening than I had originally. While on these prostate meds I am completely symptom free, and have dry ejaculations.
