Tips and advice for any sexual side effects of treatment

Use it or lose it

How this treatment impacted my life the most

I did not have any symptoms of prostate problem (waking for peeing or leaks). My PSA was between 4 and 5 and no family history. MRI and biopsy showed cancer all over the prostate. I had 3 months hormone medication (pills), HD Brachytherapy and 15 sessions of Radiation. Only symptom after treatment was dry orgasm and burning during peeing. PSA has been 0.1 since.

If I had to do it all over again, would I choose the same treatment?


Why did I give this answer?

I am not eligible for surgery due to previous operation in the area 15 years ago.
