I meant what I said initially trans - urethral resection of the bladder followed by re-resection of the bladder. (2 x TURB's) ...
Regarding my prostate cancer I had a core needle biopsy and this is being followed by way of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) testing ... until brachytherapy proves necessary.
I do not have any form of erectile dysfunction.I have anorgasmia as a result of chronic pain at the moment of anticipated orgasm and ejaculation.

Dear Sir,I am a 59 year old male who was diagnosed with bladder cancer in the bladder neck T1 High Grade 2 years 5 months ago .... Initially the consultant using the flexible cystoscopy found no abnormality but subsequent fixed cystoscopy found the problem to his shock as the cystoscope was being removed and by accident also found I had prostate cancer.Biopsies confirmed the cancer staging following histology results.I have had 2 turb's and regular monitoring with 6 monthly flexible cystocopies.I have been having Mitomycin C & BCG Instillations.I have high urine protein and have had no love life for over 2 years! ...I have regular firm erections but cannot reach orgasm as at the point of ejaculation and orgasm as chronic pain stops me proceeding further. My marriage ended sadly as a result.My BCG had to be stopped 4 weeks ago because it was burning my bladder and I was passing blood,bladder tissue and blood clots.I have regular urges to urinate which causes chronic right kidney pain and I often pee myself because I cannot reach the bathroom quickly enough.
This as you will see is a multi-layered question! ... in addition how do I get my love life back?
Thankyou for responding with such understanding.
3) My erections are as strong as ever but the pain at the point of orgasm/ejaculation prevents any pleasure and is incredibly frustrating.
After the first TURB no problems sexually ... after the second TURB about 2 years ago the problems started and despite being told everything would return to normal I have suffered ever since ... can this be resolved?
You have read my long introduction and trust you can deal with my concerns and give me some sort of long term prognosis?
My consultant is uncomfortable talking in detail and simply says 'well we saved your life' ... nothing further :) ...
I have been given Cialis ... what a joke ... I have regular strong erections! ... so is not needed.
I have been given Oxybutynin for bladder spasms and that doesn't work.
I am a F.R.I.C.S. and cannot work at the moment and feel my world is crashing around me ...
Are medications available to fix whatever was damaged?
