TPP 52: FOFO – Soakademia

by | Sep 21, 2021 | Men's Issues, The Penis Project Podcast | 1 comment


For today’s episode, we talk to Brendan – who has just recently undergone surgery a few weeks ago, 3.5 weeks to be exact.  

Brendan talks about his journey from when he figured out his PSA levels, to going through Covid and worry, to coping with the loss of someone close who succumbed to prostate cancer and to finally making a choice towards facing the inevitable C.  

He also explains what FOFO is and this cool term ‘soak-ademia’ that we believe some or even most of you might have experienced.  

Have a listen to this raw and fresh story that will surely resonate with those who have gone through the same predicament… and to those who are about to face the big C, Brendan’s story will help you figure out the first steps.

Suggested Walk Durations from Dr. Jo

  • Prior surgery – 1 hour walking a day or 5 km walks is a good thing to aim for
  • Post-surgery (with catheter) – short walks, less than 10-15 mins
  • Post-surgery (no catheter) – 15-20 mins, less leakage in the morning than in the afternoon

    I really enjoyed this session as I am only 5 weeks post-op and identified with much of this story. I am suffering from perineal pain and ask if you have a podcast that deals with this issue? Many thanks, JL
