← Return to Cycling after radical prostatectomy (RP)? Increase risk of recurrence?

The hospital said 3 months but my Urologist says I should gradually build up and use a soft saddle. I do not want to replace my saddle on my racing bike.

Does anyone have a program which they followed where they increased a bit every week.

Just wondering when I can do a 3 or 4 hour cycle again or go on a cycling holiday. It is my main pastime.

I'm hoping others who are avid cyclists and have had similar surgery can share their experience with you. Here is a story I found along with a study that might provide some hope…

I know you don't want to replace your saddle on your racing bike but are there other alternatives you can look at that would answer any concerns your urologist has?
