Restoring Sexual Intimacy
After Prostate Cancer Treatment
From the desk of Jacek L. Mostwin M.D., D. Phil. (Oxon)
First you suffered the shock of your prostate cancer diagnosis. Then treatment -- radical prostatectomy.
Now it's several months since your prostate cancer surgery and you're starting to worry.
While your physician assures you that your prognosis is excellent, with each passing week it becomes increasingly obvious that you are not able to achieve an erection.
While nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy has significantly improved the likelihood that you will regain erectile function, it might take a while. For 60 to 85 percent of men, the average wait is about 18 months. For some men it can take two years or longer.
Now the good news: Successful treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED) are available -- and we can help you learn about them.
If you're struggling with ED, you need the most current, trustworthy information on your treatment options, so you can make informed decisions about your sexual future.
That's why my fellow prostate cancer specialists and I have written Restoring Sexual Intimacy After Prostate Cancer Treatment. It contains vital information you won't find in any other single source.

USE IT OR LOSE IT
What if you haven't yet had surgery? How do you plan for your post-surgery recovery? If you're like most sexually active men facing radical prostatectomy, you'll want to know when you'll be able to have sexual intercourse after the operation.
In Restoring Sexual Intimacy After Prostate Cancer Treatment, Dr. Trinity J. Bivalacqua, Associate Professor of Urology, Surgery, and Oncology at Johns Hopkins, talks about potential sexual issues following prostate cancer surgery.
Erectile medication ... injection therapy ... penile prosthesis. Dr. Bivalacqua discusses these current treatment options, as well as new and exciting erection therapies now in the pipeline.
For example, Dr. Bivalacqua reports that Johns Hopkins will soon be launching a clinical trial with stem cells to see if they can protect the delicate nerve bundles located near the prostate that can be damaged during prostate surgery.
Why and how does the penis get shorter following prostate cancer surgery? What can be done to prevent penile shortening? When should a man consider a penile prosthesis? Dr. Bivalacqua addresses these and other important questions, focusing on the needs and concerns of you, the patient.
Take the DRUG Challenge
Are you a Viagra "failure?"
When it comes to ED, many men think you simply take Viagra and voila -- an erection! The truth is that these meds do nothing to increase sexual desire. They enhance performance once sexual desire has been aroused.
How does that happen? In Restoring Sexual Intimacy After Prostate Cancer Treatment you'll learn how Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra trigger an erection. Experts explain the importance of sexual stimulation, proper dosing, and "setting the mood."
