My husband has finished his prostate cancer treatment PSA levels are normal i am really pleased , but i really miss our closeness and sexual activitys which we both struggle with emotionally , he had hormone treatment and radiotherapy . we have been happily married 42yrs and he is still my soul mate but both feel depressed and miss what we had .
Sorry to see you joining this particular club but welcome to the Mac Community.
Don't have any experience of prostate cancer my wife had breast cancer, but we know our way around the site.
There is a 3 page discussion for wives / partners covering this very issue in the Prostate Group you could have a look through clicking this link.
You could even reply to get chatting in that group as a lot of wives / partners are members if you don't get very many replies here.
I think what a lot of couples have problems with is it's not only the arousal/erection issue it is also the treatment causes lack of desire
Hope this helps and you find some answers, G n' J
