Retraining my prostate?

Posted 04 December 2017 18:49:26(UTC)


Since radiotherapy I've had mush reduced sensation from my prostate. I can feel it being touched, but its no longer an erogenous zone.

Is there a way to "retrain" the tissue? I was wondering about one of these electrical prostate massagers. I wouldn't mind buying one if I thought it would work but they are expensive.

Any thoughts?

No advice on the electric massager although any damage caused to the nerve bundles ( whether surgery or radiotherapy ) can take up to 2 yrs or more to repair. Surgery is drastic but the nerves if spared can recover. However damage to nerves from RT can be permanent unfortunately.

Are you having hormone therapy following the RT?


That destroyed my libido in a few days. Killed it stone dead. All else followed.
