My husband has lost all sexual desire since his radiation treatment for prostate cancer. His PSA levels are now very low, so we are very thankful for that. He's receptive to trying to increase his libido, but doesn't know how to ask his doctor about medication or other methods. Does anyone have any ideas I can share with him? We just got married two weeks ago, I'm supportive, and he showers me with hugs and kisses, but I'm really missing the sexual part of our marriage. ThanksView Thread
I frequented these boards some 8 years ago when I was diagnosed. I received much good info and guidance. Went on to choose a treatment for my rather aggressive PCa and have lived with good results ever since. (Ask me and I'll share more. I'm quite happy with my choice, but will offer an honest assessment. )
I'm actually here for a friend who was just diagnosed. He's trying to learn of treatments available, and was interested in Proton therapy (not what I had). He lives in Central Florida (Space Coast). I am wondering where the best centers in Florida are for this treatment. I had thought that Mayo in Jacksonville offered this, but so far I'm not finding clear evidence of this. Thought I'd seek out some personal experience.
Ok, I'm 17 this year. I have these symptoms of pain at gooch after peeing more than (1 year i guess) and the pain only happens couple of months once like (2-3 months once), I have no urge to urinate whatsoever until recently when I get the pain again. It really scares the #$%^^ outta me and I went to google to search since that day I tend to urinate more frequently not sure whether or not because I'm in 16 degree celcius air conditioned room for long hours but most of the time I stay in my room. Regardless, I tried to observe my pee but it's kinda clear I assume. It was only once that I saw its kind of cloudy. But, today I woke up and I felt a mild pain at my right side of my upper ass around the waist area, just mild pain(really mild) when I make walk, there's also pain when I stretch my body while standing. There's no pain when i sit. This scare the *&@( outta me again hope I won't get any cancer cuz im too young to die. PLEASE RESPONSE PLEASE I HAVEN"T SEEN ANY DOCTOR UNTIL NOW BECAUSE I'm TOO SHY TO DO SO THEY WOULD WANNA LOOK AT ME NAKED.View Thread

Father had initial cancer treatment a few years ago with a radical prostectomy. Then about two years ago his PSA went back up and started radiation again to the same area. He now had residual issues with his bladder of severe incontinence. He is only able to keep control of 1/4 of his own bladder. It controls his life,he is only in his early 70's. He has tried the bladder training and neuromuscular electrical simulator for the entire regime and has not shown any success. He as of last week started botox tx. Are we on the right track? This is in the Portland, Maine area. As an ICU nurse in the Tampa Area i am a distance away and want to make sure i can lead them in any possible direction of leading a quality life. They have put off relocating her with us because of this and if I can even possibly find a MD locally here that would be fabulous. Anyone with any information for me would be great. Or even the type of specialist he should be seeing. He sees a specialist of a Urogynocologist. Thanks so much.View Thread
