Commercials for products like Viagra and Levitra have helped to open up communication about male impotence. Unfotunately, drugs are not always the answer and many men are too embarassed to get help. Now, a well known musician is sharing his story and his revolutionary treatment. Former Kansas drummer Dennis Holt will be guest speaker at a male incontinence and impotence seminar. Thursday, April 12, 2007 Fred W Smith Auditorium, 12th Floor Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute UAMS Dennis Holt had the world by the tail - touring the country in the early eighties as drummer for rock band Kansas. Going on to play with well known artists such as Restless Heart and The Pointer Sisters. At six feet eight inches tall, you could say he was high on life. "I bike. Im very active. Drumming keeps me in shape also. So I walked in and felt - hey, Im going to be the healthiest 50 year old you are going to see today." That was three and a half years ago. Dennis went in for a routine physical and left his doctors office with a diagnosis of prostate cancer. Having lost his father and best friend to the disease, Dennis underwent two radical prosthetectomies - leaving the 50 year old musician both incontinent and impotent. "I thought, you know what, I am not a man anymore. Im impotent and I am going to have to wear diapers. It scared me to death. There were many many tears shed." After a year of living with adult diapers and trying various erectile dysfunction drugs, Dennis finally decided to take a more invasive approach. He opted for whats known as a penile prosthesis. "At that point, I said - lets do it. Im not going to live my life like this anymore." "If you look at the satisfaction rates with all types of therapy, far and away, the most satisfied group of patients are the ones with implants." Dr. John Delk, a urologist at UAMS, is one of the nations top implant surgeons. He says right now more than thirty million men in the US suffer from some form of ED, Since 1983, he has performed more than nine thousand implants. "Its an inflatable device thats implanted in the penis. Its done through an inch and a half incision next to the scrotum. The penile implant surgery takes about twenty minutes to do. No one can tell that the implant is in there. I tell guys that they can take a shower with ten guys staring at them and they wouldnt know that they had an implant." Although a big decision, Dennis says its the best decision he could have made.
