yes, we always have this discussion somewhere along someone's recovery.
Jeff has not had an erection yet to the point that we can have intercourse, but we do other things to satisfy each other and ourselves. as soon as the catheter was out, he wanted to start working on that. we do get frustrated and impatient, but we are happy that we did what we did. the cancer is gone. Jeff has info on a vacuum therapy system that we are going to pursue. so far he's shying away from the injections. I can't really blame him.
iggy, you've been through a lot and I'm sure your emotions have been all over the place. hang in there (oops, in more ways than one
) things will get better. kat
