Anal Sex After Radiation Therapy

My PSA is .23 twelve months after laparoscopic prostatectomy. I am scheduled for a PET scan at the end of the month, and then a consult with my surgeon a week after that. I was able to resume bottoming with my partner about 3 months after surgery, and the sex has never been better. Now that my PSA is elevated, I assume my surgeon will recommend radiation therapy. My question is will I be able to bottom after radiation therapy, and if so, how soon should I expect to wait?

At least 3 months. If it hurts, stop.

You might want to read my posts and replies re: having anal sex after radiation. Waited three months, and saw no difference at all. As pleasurable as ever. Good luck!
