Beege, that was a concern to me as I was trying to determine which way to go - radiation or surgery. The final outcome %'s were just about equal. I spoke to a number of men that had had gone the surgery route and found out that a number of them were having this issue. Seems the Prostate develops the fluid for the ejection and once it is gone, then it is a dry function apparently, that is if you can even get an erection. That is not covered by this Dr since all he is talking about is getting an erection here. After reading all I could find on it and talking to my family doctor, I decided to go the radiation route for what was referred to as a better quality of life. We will see if it makes any difference. So far, things still work - erection and ejaculation. Maybe not as well as before I had all the treatments (43 of them). But since I just finished the radiation treatments it is too early to tell the final outcome.View Thread
