A lot of the sex drive (libido) has to do with the hormone shots you have in connection with and before treatment …even surgery.. the Lupron shot initially is to shrink the prostate.. so it can be targeted more easily… I had only one shot.. but the effects hang around for a year… some men get a series of shots .. 1 every 4-6 months… for a couple years… so you and your doctor … even an oncologist must have a talk…

Thank you Ken82. My surgeon made no mention of the hormone shots. I don't believe my prostate in enlarged. I have none of the classic symptoms. the cancer was discovered as part of a routine checkup and physical. The consult for radiation the Dr. did say I would be getting the hormone shot(s). I will be sure to ask the surgeon about it during my next consult
