Virtually all men experience Erectile Dysfunction after Prostate Cancer Treatment at Toronto hospitals. This is to be expected. Historically, these men were encouraged to wait a year for erectile function to resume. More often than not, the improvement was less than hoped for.
Newer studies show that early treatment to increase blood flow to the penis ( Penile Rehabilitation, or Penile Rehab ) after prostate cancer treatment increases the chances that Toronto men will achieve good erectile function later. Waiting a year and just hoping for Erectile Dysfunction to resolve is not optimal. Sometimes therapy for Erectile Dysfunction was effective at this point, but often not.
The concept of Penile Rehabilitation ( Penile Rehab ) is now being introduced to Toronto men after Prostate Cancer Treatment, to lessen the likelihood of Erectile Dysfunction becoming permanent.
Some medications taken on a daily basis, and available in Toronto, can help improve blood flow to help with Penile Rehabilitation. If oral medications aren’t effective at improving erections, then stronger medication such as Intracavernosal Injection Therapy ( also available in Toronto ) for Penile Rehabilitation should be considered sooner rather than later.
Adding vacuum pump therapy to medication after Prostate Cancer Treatment has been shown to be helpful with Penile Rehabilitation as many Toronto men will attest to. Ontario Men’s Health, located in Toronto, is a clinic with a special interest in providing Penile Rehabilitation ( Penile Rehab ) to men after Prostate Cancer Treatment.
Men who have had Prostate Cancer Treatment, in Toronto or elsewhere, should be proactive with their care and seek early treatment for Erectile Dysfunction, within several weeks of their surgery or radiation treatment.
