What seat after prostate surgery? Do Suspension chamges help?

Any post-prostate surgery riders?
One of my riding buddies recently had prostate surgery, and cannot ride for a while. Based on statistics, many (or most) of us males will eventually have prostate trouble of one sort or another. Consequently, I am curious as to experiences of the KLR community in dealing with prostate ailments while trying to enjoy our hobby. Is there a particular seat comfiguration that works better? Any suspension changes needed?

Get a wider and comfortable seat. The stock KLR suspension is already softly spring.
But first you have to give your body a chance to heal if you had a prostatectomy.
You'll know when your ready to ride, you won't develop pain in the keister after a short ride.
Good luck.

They ran the roto-rooter up mine about 15 years ago. At the time I was driving a '96 T'bird - very comfy, automatic, etc., etc. A couple of weeks later I told the Urologist that I was going to visit some friends about 300 miles away - all freeway driving.

He nearly produced a brick. He told me I'd just had major surgery on a very delicate component and recovery time was 6 weeks. Not 5 or 5. You could say he was very emphatic.
