Listener Question: "I had my prostate removed. What can I do about my libido since it has diminished so greatly?"
Dr. Mistry shares that a primary reason for prostate removal is the treatment of prostate cancer. While these procedures are effective at treating this type of cancer, they are also associated with erectile dysfunction in 30-70% of people who have them. This is because the nerves that allow the penis to fill with blood and stay erect are very close to the prostate gland, making them vulnerable during some procedures. This is one reason it is so important for men to find a urologist that is comfortable and experienced performing these surgeries--to keep your body functioning at its best. Dr. Mistry also discusses the various options available for treating erectile dysfunction.
When it comes to a diminished sex drive (aka low libido), self-esteem and confidence can play a critical part in sexual performance. At Urology Specialists, patients have access to a licensed sex therapist to help treat the psychological aspects of sexual performance. This counseling has helped many men and their partners get back to a restored sex life.
