Re: Prostate Cancer

Because the prostate gland is responsible for most of the ingredients of ejaculate, removal or radiotherapy leads to dry orgasm. This makes for a different sex life, opening up a range of new experiences & techniques. It just requires an open mind, working on the principle of "use it or lose it".

I had mine out nearly 3 years ago, and they had to remove all the nerves, glands, etc.

Since the there has only been liited success with achieving erections. I've found the Caverject solution works very well - not very exciting sticking a needle into the old fella, but the results are fantastic. Lately I've also tried the vacuum device with good success. Again not terribly romantic but results are great.

Doc tells me there is not much chance of things ever going back to pre surgery days, but having survived the cancer and still being here, the inconvenience is not such a big issue. 

Talk to your Doc and partner about it and don't be afraid to try something new.
