ED After Surgery

Ultima Vez Modificado: 21 de febrero del 2011

Question

Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"

It has been a year after my husband's surgery, he still has sexual difficulty is this normal?

Answer

Alan J. Wein, MD, Professor and Chair of the Division of Urology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, responds:

It could take up to two years for erectile function to return, in the meantime, you might consider, assuming you have tried the oral medications, the vacuum erection device or penile injections. Your urologist should be able to advise you about both of these.

This question and answer was part of the OncoLink Brown Bag Chat Series. See the full transcript of Prostate cancer treatment: where are we now?
