September 14, 2020

 Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Penis Project Podcast, this is the place to come to find out everything you've always wanted to know about men's health but were too embarrassed to ask.

Join physiotherapist Dr Jo Milios and Sexologist Nurse Practitioner Melissa Hadley Barrett as they talk to real men and the experts about men's private parts.

Today's first episode is all about prostate cancer. September is International Prostate Cancer Awareness month. In this episode Jo and Melissa chat with Phil who has had prostate cancer robotic surgery in early 2020, he is 4 months post treatment and doing well. Phil is 53 years of age. His journey is a bit bumpy, entertaining and above all honest. 

The topics covered include continence, sexual function, the psychological impacts of his diagnosis, and his physical recovery.
