5 Tips For Great Sex After Prostate Cancer

- Leading robotic prostatectomy surgeon, Dr. David Samadi, makes sex after prostate surgery a priority for his patients.

NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It's very likely that whichever prostate cancer treatment you choose – prostatectomy surgery, hormone therapy, brachytherapy, external beam radiation, or HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) – will impact your sex life. Exactly how depends on which method you choose and your dedication to getting back in bed.

"Once patients are assured that they will have sex after prostate removal surgery, they can shift their focus to enjoying sex as soon as possible," encourages Dr. David Samadi, creator of the SMART (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique) robotic prostate removal surgery.

While his innovative surgical technique and experience give men a tremendous leg up in sexual recovery after prostate cancer, men have to play an active role as well.

Sexual performance after prostate cancer and getting back to enjoyable sex after prostate surgery is possible. Here's how:

  • 1. Masturbate – solo sex is a great way to help you relax, build confidence, and find out how your body will respond after surgery.
  • 2. Kegel exercises – mastering these pelvic floor exercises before surgery can actually improve your orgasm after surgery. They may even help you achieve multiple orgasms. Bonus – they help strengthen urinary control, too.
  • 3. Involve your partner – remember that sex is best as a team sport so the sooner you work together, the better. Use physical and emotional intimacy to build up to penetration.
  • 4. Stay ahead of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) – oral medication for ED is a great way to speed sexual recovery. Using prescriptions such as Viagra or Cialis, even for a short time, can give you the confidence and sexual potency you need.
  • 5. Have sex – the more sex you have, the more sex you'll have. Meaning, penile rehabilitation through touching, intimacy, and erection "practice" will actually get you back in the game faster.

Limit prostate cancer to just another part of your evolving sex life. "The reality is that sex changes for every man as he goes through each decade of his life. For some men, prostate cancer is part of that progression," says Dr. Samadi who works closely with men and their partners before and after prostate cancer. With dedication, eighty-five percent (85%) of his patients regain sexual potency in just 12-24 months.

Learn precisely how SMART robotic prostatectomy surgery protects sexual function and read more about your sexual recovery options after prostate cancer surgery. Dr. David Samadi has performed more than 4,000 successful robotic prostatectomy procedures as Vice Chairman, Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
