    I had prostate cancer treatment. The treatment was with Brachytherapy
    seed implants. After treatment I was having sex a few days later. My problem is I cum but not at all like it use to be which I was aware would deminish. Has anyone known anybody who has a situation like mine. I have been reading about the post reguarding the supplement and the different foods or things to try. I use viagra, cialis and I use penile injections which has kept me with a very good and active sex life. Sometimes i have trouble cumming period. I need to cum better if there is any help for me

    Ken - I work in hospital for some radiologists one of who has a brother with prostate cancer so it's a constant topic around the shop. All the docs are getting their PSA's and prostates checked and of course there are a lot of jokes about the exam as well (I've had the finger up my butt almost annually for about a decade, and no I don't look forward to it)! Also work with urologists who implant the seeds although most of that is done in radiation oncology centers (outpatient).
    Anyway mate, I think you should expect eventually to have your cum dry up completely as a result of the treatment. It's probably some medication you take that makes it hard to get off, so I would check with your internist or family doctor.

    My brother and a couple of friends have had prostate cancer.

    One was with the seed implant, and the other two had their prostate surgically removed. From what I have been told by all of them, they no longer cum at all....some precum. however which comes from the Cowpers glan.

    I under stand that all have dry orgams, with the orgasm being more of an intern thing....with a "feeling" of cumming, but not actually doing it.

    Just thought I would pass along what I have been told by all three of them.

    Since Reading the Post on L-arginine, purchasing and taking a dosage of about
    3 to 5000 mg or 3 to 5 tab a day. Don't know exactly what but I ejaculate and she feels it because she is not satisfied until she has her orgasm and feels me ejaculate so she knows I am spent. Before the arginine after one cum it would be hell to get another one within two days, but now I can get one every day.
    I am not back to normal anyway so I take the trimix injections and viagra and whenever i want and my wife is willing I can go and I am talking porn star type sessions. With no going soft until i am ready.

    Interesting post, kenw. I had brachytherapy April 14th, 07 and wasn't able to have an erection until the following mid July. But that was mostly due to the injections I received to stop the produciton of testosterone. It's also one of the reasons I joined LPSG, to hear about and share frank sexual discussions with other guys who have or are dealing with the disease. But you may notice these folks, though quite literate, well-read, and educated, aren't into talking about prostate cancer.

    If you had brachytherpy you most likely were diagnosed as having early Stage 1 prostate cancer (I hope). So, first, be thankful that you still have prostate gland (albeit, a shrinking one), can pee without pain or incontinence, and can at least get it up without chemical assistance -- even though you can no longer do it two or three times a day.

    Your ejaculate should be dry, but not nonexistent. It often increases after your first year to almost normal quantities, but your previous milky semen will now be mostly clear fluid -- still sticky and gooey, but sans little swimmers. I'm sure you know that you need to continue to have your PSA tested every four months to ensure that the implants knocked out the adenomas.

    You should ask the urologist/surgeon who performed the procedure how he implanted the radioactive isotopes. In the USA they are fond of planting one or two extra seeds opposite one another just inside the urethra at the posterior base of the gland. This can cause you to have less than satisfactory ejaculate when you once again begin to have sex. I had the procedure done here in Buenos Aires and was shown by my surgeon just how they had mapped my prostate and where they were going to insert the seeds. Down here they try to avoid placing seeds close to the urethra, if possible. However, everyone is different. But most important is that you need at least a year before you begin to realize any significant increase in your ejaculate.

    During my last check up (January 08) in addition to the usual blood draw, my urologist had me whack off wearing a condom, then sent it to his clinic's lab. My PSA is 0.01 -- women have higher PSA's and they don't have prostates! (Actually, they don't have PSA's per se, just higher levels of testosterone, which is altogether different.) I'm happy. And the amount of ejaculate measured by the lab is consistent with where they expect me to be at this point in time during remission. I talked about the ejaculate measurment with a friend in the USA who is also a urologist and he insists he's never heard of such a procedure. Then again, he's in the USA. There's a lot physicians don't know about up there. BTW: I'm a 'Mericuhn citizen.

    If it's of any interest, my squeeze tells me that upon those occasions we sixty-nine, my cum tastes the same as it did before the procedure.

    Hell, give it time and be thankful that your cancer wasn't so bad they had to remove the whole thing and then follow it up with radiation therapy. And good luck with it staying in remission.

    I am now in my 3 year post bracytherapy period, have very little cum, and it's not at all like before, very clear liquid. I also have difficulty getting a full erection, but do orgasm with (I think) more intensity than before the therapy. I had 100 seeds implanted.

    This is a really informative thread. I hope it continues. The more information, the better.

    thanks midlifebear you are quite knowledgeable and are a tremendous source i will discuss more with you. I have been on L-Arginine since i first noticed the subject on this forum. I am almost 1 year into the brachytherapy treatment and use injections and viagra before sex i guess mental anxiety is in the way and don't ever want to fail. really have not really tried sex without them. Before the L-Arginine was having problems cumming more than once every three days but now have been able to cum three or four days in a row which I am so happy of. My partner says she does feel it which she says she has to feel to be satisfied.
