I was diagnosed in 2003 with prostrate cancer and chose my treatment in 2004, I was not very active sexually back then so I didn't pay attention to what "coming" felt like after the treatment which was, by the way, radioactive seed implantation. Fast forward to 2016 and my comfort level with being gay has blossomed. As a result, I find myself much more active sexually but the orgasms I'm having and the time it takes to reach a climax are bumming me out. I'm a firm believer that there is a cure for anything that ails one if I take the time to search so I recently visited my urologist. I asked him to refer me to a physical therapist for the E.D. and he politely said he couldn't. He said that's what Viagra, Cialis, etc. are for. I don't like taking pills and when I tried a generic version of Viagra i didn't experience the fireworks that I was hoping for. By the way the same urologist who last month told me physical therapy isn't a treatment for E.D. sent me to a physical therapy practice in 2006 to prevent urinary bowel control and pelvic floor pain. I don't even think they were issues but I followed "doctor's orders", went faithfully to the physical therapy and have never had urinary bowel control or pelvic floor pain in the 12 years since my prostrate cancer treatment. But since then I've learned that not all doctors are alike so hence my question again: Has anyone reading this heard of using physical therapy to reduce the problem of E.D. ? Is there anyone reading this who--in simple language--can explain why physical therapy wouldn't be of any benefit in treating E.D. ? Thanks to all of you who are reading this.
