I must say that my sexuality has improved since my husband's RRP [radical retropubic prostatectomy].
It has been almost six months since we've had intercourse but I really don't miss it
My partner's inability has nurtured a lot of creativity that we

kidney first, it being the most life-threatening. Both were found
no further treatment was required. We feel lucky to have been
enough to find them early and that has contributed to our positive
state (lucky to be alive) which in turn contributes to our enjoyed,
appreciated, cherished ability to please each other in bed.
