This will probably end up something of a biographical note which was not the original intention. Having been associated with ProstateCancerUK for about 3 years I should have made my way to this site before now. Somehow, neither my partner of 38 years nor I have thought we needed any support. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer 3 years ago and was treated with radiotherapy and hormones. Yes, of course there were some issues, especially his complete loss of libido and some hot flush symptoms. My own libido was also depressed as I have prostate hypertrophy and treatment for that also affects libido and associated erectile function.
Somehow, we seemed to move through those 3 years with few major problems. Now he is off the hormone treatment his libido is full on again yet I remain on medication for the enlarged prostate and find it challenging to to rise to the occasion if you will pardon the well tried pun.
So I decided to have a look here and see what information I might picke up. It seems that posts here are few and far between but I thought I would jump in anyway and see who may get back to me.
