Lack of sex drive,

Posted 31 Jan 2022 at 08:44

Hi everyone , I'm currently struggling with sex drive and the lack of it, also getting and keeping an erection. All this has happened since having Brachytherapy treatment, I'm not getting much support from my local NHS or my doctor so called anyone give me any advice or help please

There are Erectile Dysfunction clinics in some, but not all, areas. Ask your GP for a referal.  I had Brachy and despite all the treatments I still have ED and lack of libido.

I actually had problems before the diagnosis of Pca but the brachy sure hasn't helped!

I use Caverject 40mg injections, and that works but it is painful afterwards.

There are several treatment options and the ED clinic will prescribe via your GP. You just need to get an appointment at a clinic, if there is one!

When did you have the brachytherapy? Did you also have hormone treatment and if so, when did that finish?

Did you have hormone therapy, and if so, what type and when did it run out?

How long ago was the brachytherapy, and what type (seed/LDR or HDR)?

Did you have any ED beforehand, or any cardio issues or diabetes?
