You definitely have the potential to resume full sexual function. It may take some time before you know whether or not the surgery affected your sexual functioning, but don’t wait to meet with an experienced physician about these concerns. While some doctors may tell you to simply wait and see, other doctors experienced in sexual medicine might offer you options soon after surgery to help ‘prevent’ sexual problems from developing. If you discover that you do indeed have erectile dysfunction as a result of prostate surgery, successful treatment to help you achieve strong erections is certainly possible. Other things to consider before you undergo prostate cancer surgery are: the type of surgery you are offered (there are nerve sparing techniques available) and the experience of your surgeon. These factors will affect your erectile health post-surgery. At Canadian Men’s Clinic, we have had excellent success with patients who are experiencing ED after prostate cancer surgery. If you have further questions or you would like to book an appointment, please call us and we would be happy to help you.
