After my prostate op- I had problems with the saddle I had been using for years so down to the LBS and got one of these new saddle with the cutaway for the pubic bone. It worked---For about 2 weeks. So another saddle and fine again- for another couple of weeks. I forget how many saddles I bought and borrowed in the next 6 years- but I do remember the pain. (Ever done 100miles on a saddle that that had red hot nails sticking upwards after 10 miles-I did) Then suddenly I got two new saddles and a new bike. The saddles both had a bit of padding on them but still had the cutaway. One was a Flite Max gel and the other a San Marco Aero. I do not know if it was the new saddles- Or the change from MTB's to road bike- or that the Prostate area suddenly calmed down- But all I do is wish you good luck.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
