I had 45 proton radiation treaments thid past winterI noticed fatigue which interfered with my exercise program. I used viagra to counter the effects of some other meds-still use it successfully- volume of ejaculate has decreased since the treatment. dakota bill

DAKOTA BILL,
During my Proton treatment it was suggested to me that I take Daily Cialis to promote blood flow to the nerves which I have done. So far so good.

Did you experience ED while taking treatments? Did you have it after treatments? Thinking about having proton therapy... trying to learn what issues I can expect.

phoenix752,
I suffered some ED following RP surgery in 2001 but after 7 years I was basically back to normal but my PSA was rising. My doctor suggested taking Avodart to slow the progression of the disease and then after a couple of months I had some ED problems again. Since starting Proton Therapy in Dec 2009 I have been taking Cialis daily and my sex life is good.

Great news, I wish you continued success. I feel more comfortable about making the move.

Thanks
