I wanted to post something about my experience of sexual life since my diagnosis in 2014
first off, I had the RP operation in 2014, and the expected neuropraxis/nerve injury that the operation gives. However, although I could not physically perfom sexually, the ”itch”, the desire was as strong as ever.
luckily I regained potency at around 6-7 months post op, and have enjoyed our sexual life, though changed a bit with dry orgasms (still intense and pleasurable though)
However, since late 2017 and biochemical recurrence, I have been on Bicalutamide, as well as 6 week SRT, and increasing Tamoxifen doses (to current 20mg daily because of painful gynecomastia)
Unfortunately I am now in a pretty awful position over past 4 months where, with daily Cialis, I am able to have sex normally, but what is really awful is the lack of interest in sex that the HT brings. its alien, weird, like an itch that you have all your life that suddenly leaves you
in many ways it feels worse than having desire but being unable to have sex.
I have 11 more months of HT to go and can’t wait until my body’s hormones get back to a normal as this is almost unbearable
