im now around 9 months after having permanent seed brachytherapy. Treatment went really well and my psa is now down to 0.93.
however I’m really having problems with sexual performance. its been on and off over the last few months, but ive really lost my sex drive and although I’m on cialis, I’m struggling with keeping erections.
this in turn has lead to me getting worsening performance anxiety when having sex with my wife, which is leading to me wanting sex less. This is starting to affect our relationship which is the last thing I want, as she’s been so supportive.
when I last saw my consultant he said erection problems were to be expected as my body is now going through healing process, but that it should improve. I get this, however it’s still getting frustrating and because I’m now worrying about it, I’m concerned I’ve got myself into a vicious cycle.
i feel I need to talk to someone, maybe a counsellor so I can talk all this through. im in the surrey/Greater London area. Does anyone have any recommendations or words of wisdom?
