How this treatment impacted my life the most

Our sex life was fantastic before, The erction injections were a great help, however now I am back on hormone treatment my sex drive has gone. We still try to find time to have sex as it is still very enjoyable.

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


Why did I give this answer?

I would rather be alive and try to extend my life as long as possible. So much more to see and do.
