I had a radioactive...

I had a radioactive seed installed for cancer treatment, and 2 months later found what seemed to be some blood in my ejaculate; is this cause for concern? I had much less semen as well.

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Good .I am very fit for a 70 year old. Just impotent

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I can mechanically achieve an erection; but can't bring it to the party

It is not worrisome.

This is a self limiting condition.

This can happen due to the radioactive see.

Following are the steps which may be discussed with your doctor;

1) Initial stepa) intraurethral suppositories,b) the vacuum device, andc) intracavernous injection. IF THIS IS NOT AN OPTION OR FAILS 2) Second step; Placement of a penile prosthesis is the primary therapeutic option for individuals who have failed or cannot tolerate prior therapies. This is a surgical option. There are two and three-piece inflatable prostheses. 3) Combination therapies;a) Sildenafil Plus Intraurethral Prostaglandin E1b) Oral PDE-5 Inhibitors Plus Intracavernous Injection of Prostaglandin E1c) Sildenafil Combined with an Oral Alpha-Antagonistd) Intracavernous Prostaglandin E1 Combined with Oral Alpha-Antagoniste) Vacuum device and intracavernous injection therapyf) Testosterone Plus Sildenafil Was this information helpful to you?
