Welcome to HealingWell. We are blessed with a great site here. So many will be glad to talk with you and lend help when they can. I have been on this road for over two years. Almost two years on hormone therapy. After surgery everything worked. The problem was my disease was advanced and we needed to add more therapies. HT is the culprit now. I joke that I can now shop well for shoes, I find interest in home decorating shows on TV, and I can shave while talking on the cell phone and still drive. The truth is, I have no libido. But there is good news coming. When we stop the HT, I may get it all back...
Again, welcome and stay with us. You are most welcome.
