Age 63 now, I had radiotherapy some 3 years ago and finished my 3 years Hormone treatment 6 months ago now.
I am extremely grateful that, at present, I am "cancer free" and have been so for the past 2 years 6 months.
For some silly reason, I either didn't want to try masturbating or just didn't feel like sex with my wife - she's never been too keen anyway. As a result, my foreskin has become quite tight and it now does not retract when I get an erection. We have not tried sex together since I first started the hormone treatment and I'm guessing that penetrative sex will be painful.
I am delighted with the return of erections and dry orgasms but the age old guilt feeling of cheating on the wife has returned. In some ways, I am happy to simply pleasure myself as I still don't have that animal drive or desire to try to please my wife which is a real shame as she has been so supportive. The reason why we opted for Radiotherapy was so that we could at least have the option of erections and sex together in the future as opposed to surgery which, I was told, would certainly mean no erections ever again.
So there you have it: no sex or masturbation has resulted in a tight foreskin. I've looked into the condition called Phimosis and have started on anti- fungal cream just to be on the safe side. Stretching techniques on the foreskin will start in a few days time once the cream has had the chance to do it's job. Hopefully they will work.
And - while we are talking, my man boobs seemingly getting bigger despite having been off the hormone treatment now for 6 months - the last injection was in May 2020. Also, the nipples can erect and the whole breast hurts when you press it. I'm wondering if it is all just part of coming off the hormone treatment. Just how long does it take for man boobs to disappear?
I'm fed up with the hot flushes too!
