About the UCLH web chats

Our web chats are text based discussions. Anyone is welcome to join in the web chat.

You don’t have to be registered to join in. Simply type in your question.

Our expert will answer as many questions as possible in the allocated time. Questions are answered in the order received, although it may take a while for your question to appear ‘live’ on-screen, depending on where it falls in the queue.

If several questions are asked on the same topic, the speaker may summarise them. Questions and answers appear on the screen - you are not able to hear the chat; there is no video or sound.

Remember that the web chats are public and everyone can view your comments so do not submit information that you do not want others to see.

The web chats provide information only. They are not intended to replace a consultation with an appropriately qualified health professional.

We cannot guarantee that information provided by us through web chats will meet your health or medical requirements. If you are concerned about your health, contact your doctor.

By taking part in one of our web chats you acknowledge and agree that we will not be responsible for any claims, losses or damages (whether direct or indirect) arising out of, or relating to, the misuse of, or inappropriate reliance on, the contents or advice contained within the chats, except to the extent that such liability cannot be excluded by law.

Professor John KellyWednesday 25 May 2016, 10 - 11am

Life after prostate cancer surgery - separating the myths from the facts with Professor John Kelly

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, with over 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year. Surgery is a treatment option for prostate cancer but men facing surgery are often worried about what happens afterwards - erectile dysfunction (ED), infertility and bladder problems are common concerns.

Our expert is Professor John Kelly, consultant urological surgeon who will be available to answer your questions and separate myths from facts about recovering from prostate cancer surgery and living with the side effects of surgery. If you have any concerns or questions on this topic - whether you have had surgery or are deciding if surgery is the right treatment for you – you can put them to Professor Kelly for an expert opinion.

To join in the conversation, simply visit this page at 10am on Wednesday 25th May. To send your questions in advance, submit to webmaster@uclh.nhs.uk and Professor Kelly will try to answer your question on the day.
