I have all the empathy in the world for all you young guys with this crap.

It's not a party at any age if I can expound a little. I've never talked to anyone about this. (I have spoken to my urologist..no answer).

I'm free of cancer from 2002 up to now. Totally free. Prostate and bladder removed.
darn it, my sex drive is crazy and no relief. I was married a year when I had surgery. The wife? Hardly seen so I left when I recovered. I can use a pump. Turned down prothesis early on after divorce.

Now the best part and my question. I'm now 81, in good health and fit. 6'1", 185 lbs, and still not bad looking.

How in "H" do I recover from the revulsion that I experienced with the ex? I'm horny every darned day with no relief. I'm afraid to even approach a woman, let alone attempt to mention sex, or even get involved if it came up. Jaysus, "a pump" and "a urostomy pouch" hanging from my side?

How could any woman get in the same bed with me? I'd hesitate with a pro. LOL turn

Anyone with any ideas? Before I get too much older?

Yes, I can dance. A lot. Doing that tomorrow night.

Seems to me it is less recovery from her revulsion, and perhaps more letting go of the hurt. You have a lot going for you so my hope is you live this life fully without carrying the past into the future. Best to you sirdancelot!

Sir Dancer,
Welcome to HealingWell. What a terrific first post. It says a lot of stuff that many should hear. While I view your case with the same empathy you hold for us younger guys (I'm 47 in year 3 of advanced disease), I admire your wonderful outlook. The one exception is that it sounds like the ladies are missing out on a great guy.

But never say never. Again, welcome and we are glad to have you in our group.

Thank you Tony, and Michael,
 
Let me say that I have spent a few years in depression over the past.
 
I've let go and I'm out looking, somehow, some way.
 
Maybe I should get a hunti'n dog.
 
Thanks guys,
 
Good luck to you for a full recovery.  New advances every day, so hang in.wink

Thanks for the suggestion, Dave,
 
I love dogs, lost too many.
 
Even slept with a Great Dane, 180 lbs......only problem he was between my ex and I.   I knew when I married her the dog was part of the deal, but I never anticipated sleeping with it.
 
Good luck to you and your health.
 
Merry Christmas and Happle New Year to all here.

If you find the right women. she will live with anything. Don't sell yourself short.

I'm noit sure I would walk up to one and say "Hi, I'm Fred, Ihad my bladder and prostate removed, wanna see my pouch ?"

Dance with her for a while, get to know her, and give it some time. You will know long before you get to the pouch part if she is the right one.

As for the dog, much as I love my little Chihauha/Jack Russell, she will never replace a set of soft lips, warm arms, and a few other things.

Good luck and keep on dancing !

To goodlife,
Thank you.  You may be right.
 
You mentioned injections, never had trinix except tried ED injections.  Many new procedures since 2002.
Only got about a 5 from that, and expensive.  Only as an experiment.
 
Vacuum pump works.  Maybe I could solicit some help.  That might be interesting.  LOL
 
Good luck to you.

Sir, just kidding about the dog part. I am an "outside" dog person only. We have had the same dog for nearly 18 years now, but would never allow her in the house. Don't like dog smell and value my antiques too much to want any damage.

Depression often comes with cancer in general. I have had my periods over the years, I have had real help when needed. The past 3 years, I have been depression med free by my choice, but its been hard since I have been dealing with both PC since my 8/2008 diagnosis and long term unemployment. As difficult as my PC path has been with setback and problems, I actually think my mind is still more bothered by the unemployment part. At 57, and with almost 30 years experiences in my field, I feel like I am now disposable. I know you are older than me by a good part, you are one year younger than my living mother. But I feel the age bias when out in the job marketplace, its kind of an unspoken thing.

Glad you found us here, we do care about one another, no one would ever judge you, and if you just need the company of some good brothers and sisters too, its a great place to be.

Some basic rules of sales:

You don't make sales if you don't believe you can

You don't make sales if you don't make calls

You don't make sales if you don't try to close the deal

Geezer99,
Have I forgotten that after 50 years retail?
 
I will say that I've never been able to sell something I couldn't believe in.
In my own business, 35 years,  never kept a product in stock that I didn't believe in.
 
Your words are well taken.  Maybe I need a refresher course.
 
I wish you well, friend, whatever brought you here.

The dogs usually never divorce their masters and love you forever no matter what condition one is in. Find a neighbors dog maybe and be a mentor dog lover, they usually take in strangers with complete devotion.....dogs are excellent....to bad people don't learn more of their ways, with the LOL-LOL exceptions of licking a few bizarre things in public and humping someones leg in public and sniffing of our crotches (maybe that is good some can detect PCa by sniffing). They make you feel totally special and give you star status, I have two dogs that go nuts everytime I get home....what a bunch of great groupies. Makes your day to see such a display on a daily basis.

If anyone is interested in watching a 3-part harmony of howling with the dogs, I have a video of my dogs (Koby & Shaq) Australian Shepard mixes, called the Howlers I could email. Yeah I am a dog person and actually believe it is benefical to health, relieves stress and lowers blood pressure (sometimes the opposite if they get into the garbage or such).

Hope you adopt a neighbors dog or go to a shelter and inter-act or such, probably show you some tongue on first meetup. (LOL)

Zufus,
Well said and I agree.
 
As I wrote here once, I've lost too much.  I just don't want to lose one more love.  Many may disagree.
I never intended to use this as a sounding board about my life, but, this may give a bit of insight.  I'm not looking for sympathy.  I've lived three lifetimes.  Had it all!
I lost my son at 21, lost his mother 3 years later.
 
I remarried and she said this,"If you can't love again, you can't be loved".
Then I lost her.  Both were far too young.
 
Remembering her words, I tried again.  She was much younger than I and she came on like gang busters.  She suggested marriage and I felt, maybe she won't die before me.
 
All three of my wives proposed to me, lol.
 
My first just said she wanted to get married and it was a wonderful one.  My second just ask, (Ed's smiling here), "Are we going to get married or what?"  Another wonderful life, all too short.
 
The third as above.  All too young.
 
Dogs?  Ya, I've had a few.  The last with my second wife was a heart breaker to lose.  She died 3 months after my wife.  I'm sure she grieved herself to death.  Had her in a wonderful animal hospital for over a week.
 
May I relate a little about her?  A teacup poodle, black.  Named her Nera.  My salesman at the time called her "near a dog".
I taught that little one how to snap her jaws when she wanted something and she did, to beg for food.  She licked your hand when she had to go.  The more furiously she licked, the more urgent it was, at home or in the car. She never barked except at the doorbell and phone.
One day I was eating peanuts in the living room.   She begged and I never gave her much.  When I refused any more, she left the room.  My late wife was in the master bath.
Suddenly she called out, "Ed, what are you eating and not giving any to Nera"?
 
That dog had gone to her and snapped her jaws.
 
Hope this wasn't boring.
 
Cheers,
sirdancealot

All good brother sir-dance-alot, this is our way of cyber bar room sharing a drink (only no-alcohol and no drunks...atleast that we can see or smell...LOL). This one is on me, to you.
Salude.....ah...ah!

Enjoyed your dog story and empathize will all those losses along your life, hope you have some faith to sustain you. Here are a couple songs from the cyber juke box, I play and sing and do both of these which may be good for you, even as therapy. I am adopting you like a 'Pa (paw...get it)? Listen to the music...therapy for the soul.

Youtube.com for: Dance Dance Dance (Steve Miller Band...country sounding song you will enjoy it)

Next one is Neil Young (1971 concert-youtube.com): Old Man (song) Neil bought a big farm after becoming big rockstar, maybe around age 24 according to the legendary song, the farm came with an old man whom used to work it and knew all the ropes...Neil being a decent hearted guy kept him on which was wise for his age. Another couple songs of his you might find interesting are: Heart of Gold and Don't Let it Bring you Down (old man mentioned in that song too)

Merry Xmas to you

Hi zufus,
 
(Smiling), I'll sure listen to those.  I love music.  In 2005 I pulled out of my doldrums a bit and said to myself, "Self, you gotta do something".
So, never knowing much about the innards of music, I found a teacher and ask him if he could teach an old codger the guitar.  Well, after 8 months, these old fingers wouldn't follow my instructions on the frets.  I know the frets/notes.  Chords gave my fingers a fit.  I then asked if he could teach me Music Theory.  That became my life, a whole new world, and I had a couple of love poems and he thought I should write music to those.
 
I've spent the past 4 years writng music and lyrics, spent 15 hours a day with software.
They aren't finished as I keep learning more and they need some tweaking.  All that time on the puter gave a me a rotor cuff problem.  Been thru therapy and almost 100%, so will get to it soon.
 
I didn't mention that being here only a coupe days, and with encouragement from many like you, I went to a dance hall last night, stag, first time in a coupe years.  Had a great time but my dancing legs were out of shape so I only danced for 3 hours.  I'll be dancing tonight with an old friend, hopefully last a little longer.
 
I'm familiar with a couple of your suggestions.
Thank you very much.
 
Thanks for the "drink".   Being Italian, "A'la sua sulute".  To your health.
 
Faith?  Believe me, He and I are on the best of terms and we chat a lot.
 
Merry Christmas to U2, (not the band), you.
 
God bless,
 
Ed, aka sirdancea lot.

Ed, Sounds like you found out why we hang around on this location. The support and care we recieve and give to each other is a bost like no other place. We vent, share, and just befrend each other. It looks like these past few day here have helped just a bit.

I will tip the vino to you tonight with friends as we watch the Saints go for the 14 - 0 record.

Merry Christmas to you and keep the "Happy Feet"

Heyyy, corvetteman,
 
How you all are?
 
God, I miss that Cajun food.  Used to drive from Houston to Lafayette, have dinner and drive back.
Had some great times in NO, and been rootin for your Saints all year.
 
I used to have some friends from LA.  More good Cajun jokes than I can remember.
 
Maybe you haven't heard this one.
Thibodeax was readin the paper.  Boudreau was watching TV.
 
Thibodeax glanced over to Boudreau, "Boudreau, what is a woman's yet".
Tb:  "Whatchyou talkin' bout.  They aint no yet on a woman". 
 
Bo:  "Well, it say here in da paper, 'A woman was shot last night and da bullet is in her yet'"
 
Enjoy the party and have two drinks on me.  Wish I could be there.
 
Merry Christmas to all.

Yep, vetteman let's use the HDTV big screen the up coming football games, got chips and beer??? Don't serve any bean dips (ha-hah).

Ed (Sirdancealot)~ you can go to control panel and reveal your email address if you want and you will likely find some friends wishing you merry Xmas. Hey I don't know if you are copywriting some of your songs, but I am open to look at anything and maybe you got a great song that can be tossed around," like a coin that won't get lost...rolling back to you." Maybe you could play piano, harmonica, drum etc....even spoons and wash board can be used (LOL). I got a website of our open acoustic jam band and our rock band with this outstanding name: Grey Hair Jam Band (gotta love it) and has music files section for printing off. Any guitar playas out there???

zufus,
I haven't legally copyrighted any.  My teacher has copies of the dates written as I do, but that doesn't mean it's safe for public use, and that would prevent any copyright.
 
I've written a CW waltz, "The ways I love you".  3/4 time
Bossa, "You set my heart on fire", part Spanish lyrics.
CW swing, "A heart breaks so quietly".
CW "A place of love and tears", (I have two different lyrics to this, as well as melodies.  One I've discarded, but could recover.  My teacher "Arranged" that one)
CW "Maybe today" (I'll forget you)
Triplet style,  "Mem'rys of mem'rys"  (This is a bit of twist.  Mem'rys of her mem'rys, of another love)
Working on "My Fairytale)
I have not arranged these, but can with CoolEdit.  Just not satisfied with finished product.
These all need better chord progressions and timing of notation may need some tweaking.  I wrote these as I was learning Music Theory.  Keep learning more, on my own now.
Maybe you would like to collaborate,eh?  I have the music in my software, "Band in a Box".  MP3 available.
 
Don't know where you're located, Houston, TX, here.
I don't mind opening my email to public.  No secrets at my age.
 
Ciao,
 
Ed

Hey Sir Dance A Lot,

Not sure where you live. When my Dad was about your age he was living in Tamarac, Florida. He said the women far outnumbered the men and some were very aggressive when they saw a single man.
He said as long as you could walk on a golf course and still drive a car you could have your pick. And some of them were dandies. I saw. He married a great one one 18 years his junior who still had the "zest for life" if you know what I mean.
If you don't live in the area you might consider taking a week vacation and checking it out.
I know it is hot but go in the summer. You will find a higher concentration of locals. There are fewer visitors and Snowbirds (mostly couples) are up North. Always eat out. If you are an early morning guy go to a local restaurant or Breuggers for coffee and bagels. You have to go 2 or 3 times so you see who the repeat customers are. The ones who are all put together at 8 am are on the hunt. (As are you.)

Enjoy,
Jeff

Dancealot,

There's another hot-spot close to where I live in the Tampa area. It's The Villages, a 55+ community. You've probably seen the ads on TV. I read the other day that STD's are rampant up there, so looks like there's a lot stuff going on besides golf and shuffleboard. Of course, one wouldn't want to forget the Trojans!

Hello cocrgolfer,
 
"smiling",
That's where I left my ex and her parents, 'Villages'.
 
Thanks for your suggestion.  Arrrggggghh!  Don't mess with her.  LOL
 
No offense but she's a yankee as most are there.  I think I need a Southern gal.
turn 
 
 
I have a license to use that.  I left Yankee country many years ago.  LOL
 
Have a great day and Merry Christmas,

I was told by my Dad that there was nothing more desirable than a man with a driver's license valid for night time use. Women are attracted to it like flies to honey.
And there were some really attractive women available down there. I'm jus' sayin'.

Hey Ed,

I do believe i here a little more spring in your step already. Sorry you could only dance for three hours. Oh well, better luck next time.

A lot of this stuff is in our head. Sometimes we just have to go out and do it.

Merry Christmas to you. Hope next year finds you complaining about being tired of more than dancing !
