I've noticed that while I've always liked a cool room to sleep in, since my prostatectomy I seem to find what was cool before, now warm.
I want to turn the air conditioner up, my wife says it's freezing.
This is a total reversal of our usual positions on heating/cooling the house.
Is there any sort of hormonal response to the loss of a prostate that could account for my feeling warmer? Not hot flushes, thank Heavens, but warmer.
Of course, all of this assumes I'm the one who has changed, not my wife.
I tried a search without any luck on this. If anyone has a thought I'd be glad to hear it.
