So I had my biopsy back in November 2009. The sight of blood in my tinkle was so shocking, I almost felt like sitting instead of standing until it went away.
A few weeks and it went away. Then a week or so later came back. I also felt I needed to see if the 'ol love-tube was working so I did a little "self test". No ED, but large amount of blood in seman. Also shocking. Did a few more "self tests" over the coarse of a week and still the blood.
I felt awful and didn't want to have sex because I worried what the wife would think. Never mind she's a nurse and has seen it all, but you know...
One of the last "self test" sessions, I noticed something odd, dry ejaculation!!! What the ****!!!
I finally got the nerve to tell the wife, we fooled around and the same thing.
I don't think that the biopsy did any damage. I'm just thinking that my head is screwed up, with everything that I'm thinking about
. However, the next time I talk with the doc, I will bring this up, with wife present.
I suppose the only good that may come out of this is that I'll have a spare bed room available once I get rid of all my ****!
