as stevesmw said you did not say what type of treatment or what it was for. If you are talking about prostate cancer treatment, expect your sexual relationship to change (this from a prostate cancer patient)View Thread
The reason he said something was that you asked! As Gail has said don't ask if you don't want to hear the answer. Very likely he will now be afraid to be honest when the answer may cause a similar response (I speak from personal experience here). I know it is difficult but yu both need to get past this incident.View Thread
AS a man I can totally relate to your post (I've been exactly where you are). A counselor, if you find the right one, will help you find the tools to cope with your depressed feelings (been there too). See a counselor right away but if you don't mesh, keep looking until you find the right one. Also as Elle has said YOU need to change the situation - It won't change itself.View Thread
Due to my age and the stage of the cancer, the Dr. is very confidant that with surgery or radiation he can eliminate the cancer which would be a cure and not letting it get worse. I am ok with this but there is a chance of impotence from either course. I just am wondering how men cope/adapt to the impotence if it happens.View Thread
I have just been diagnosed with prostate cancer (i am 57 years old), and wondering about how to handle the sexual side effects of treatment. Any men out there who have gone through this and have any ideas to help?View Thread
Your second paragraph is the essence of love and marriage. Most men need sex to feel an emotional connection and most women need an emotional connection to feel sexual. Almost all couples both need to get out of their comfort zones to make it work.
The only advise I can think of is to think in small steps. Don't think of going completely out of your comfort zone, but think only a small step outside. When you do this for a while, you will get comfortable there, then take another small step. This will take time, and your husband will need to realize that it may be a long process of growing together, but trying to force yourself "all the way" at one time will probably not work for long.
Good luck and god bless. Also thank you for your service to our freedom.View Thread
