I'm currently in a hospital for heart arrhythmias and dilated cardiomyopathy. One of the problems I brought up to my Dr are that I can't have sex or masturbate without my heart getting out of sync post ejaculation. My Dr says after taking sotalol I should be fine to "live my life" but I'm scared to ejaculate. Should I do it while in a hospital setting just in case? I go home tomorrow and I'm afraid that if I don't try, I'll always be scared to do it again.

It should be Okay. But you should masturbate in the bathroom in the hospital to see if it is okay or not. If you have a stress test with the medication and don't have any problems, you should be all right.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
