Health & Fitness:Sexuality
And how emotions can spiral after treatment.
Welcome to Episode 24! In this episode, we talk to Ron.
Previous episodes have focused on treatment and recovery of continence and sexual function following prostate cancer. This week will look at prostate cancer from a different angle, the emotional one. Ron generously discussed his emotions during this difficult time.
So here we go...
Ron’s approach when he learned of his Prostate Cancer diagnosis was pragmatic. He said he had three boxes to tick.
First, get treated. Second, handle incontinence. Third, sexual function.
The first two were easy, the third not so easy and then there was the fourth which snuck up on him - the black dog.
What helped him? Writing down his thoughts. And happy pills.
Ron’s advice to men experiencing the same?
Reach out to someone as soon as you can and don’t be afraid to use happy pills.
