Male issues post treatment

This is my first post and I want to start by saying Thank you to all of you that share on this site. It has helped me make sense of what was going on with me post treatment and I know that I am not as alone as I was feeling.
I am a 52 year old male 8 months past treatment. I had two rounds of 5FU and Mitomycin along with 30 radiation sessions. (sound familiar?) I have all the bowel issues and again, this site has helped alot.
One thing I haven't seen discussed is erectile issues post treatment. As in can't get an erection. Is this common and does it improve with time? Thanks for the support.

Hello, and welcome, I am unable to help you with the ?. There are males on this discussion group so hopefully they will answer you. I know on the correctol board there are men with ed, and I believe they too had the radiation. Maybe if you do a search for ed on the whole CSN boards you will find some answers. Lori

I am glad you posted your question. It is nice to have a man on the board. I get bored sometimes and the other day was surfing many anal cancer sites and it seems as if I read about men having this sexual issue. Women certainly have sexual issues post treatment and it just makes sense that men would too. I hope you find your answer. Please check in again.
