Hello.

I'm going to have an abdominoperineal resection (removal of sigmoid colon, rectum and anus) due to Crohn's Disease in six months.

I was informed by my colorectal surgeon that I might have problems with sexual function after the surgery. I'm a young adult.

Have you experienced any problems with this after the surgery?

It's said that the removal of the anus and rectum is especially responsible for this effect (caused by nerve damage to prostate). There are numerous articles in pubmed and other databases about this issue, if anyone is interested.

I wanted to read some members' actual experiences about this whole process regarding this issue.

Thanks in advance.
