Tips and advice for any sexual side effects of treatment

I dont think I need to give tips or advice as this side effect does not cause any concerns

How this treatment impacted my life the most

I have been amazed at how little this treatment has impacted my life. the treatment was a one off procedure lasting 2 hours in May 2021. I had the procedure at 10am, got back to the ward at 12, was released at 1:30 had a 3 hour sleep back at the accommodation I was stopping at and went out for a meal at 20:00. I never had a day off work and have had no side effects. I have had 3 monthly PSA tests since, which have been at 1, an MRI prostate & bone scan at 12 months which was clear and I am due anothe MRI in june this year. I would recommend this treatment to anyone where the cancer is contained

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