Who did John Lennon write “Come Together” for?

Prostate Diaries


My Listmania page on Amazon…Famous and interesting men with prostate cancer. 

I love history and particularly biographies that not only tell you about the  person but the times in which they lived. 

For instance: Timothy Leary’s life was crazy. Lennon wrote “Come Together” for his gubernatorial race in California against Ronald Regan. He did not complete the race because he was arrested for possession of marijuana. Amazing, and that’s just the tip of the Leary iceberg. 

Unfortunately, while researching this list, I came upon the following this am.

Can you see a “nerve.” If they think they see the nerves, then do they see the “subvisual” branches that then go to the prostate? I think not. And that is why there is so much variance in how people do after a “nerve sparing ” prostatectomy.

  • an erection after prostatectomy is a function of sparing the nerves
  • a prostatectomy does not affect the testicles or the level of the males hormones or testosterone
  • it is possible to have a very high libido and not have the ability of having an erection (which can happen after any treatment of prostate cancer)
