  • Thoughts on Sex after I/O

    Well, just spent a wild night with the G/F. Ok, nothing crazy, since it's been less than 2 weeks since the I/O. Rather it was really special. I was really comforted in knowing that she was there for me and that we were able to be intimate. She thought I still looked great, and she couldn't tell that I've been altered. Seriously, she thought I looked the same.

    Which brings me to some thoughts about I/O:

    - I'm really happy I didn't get the implant. I don't see much of a difference either unless its after a shower and the survivor is hanging low. I think the implant would be a continual reminder of the cancer, if anything.

    - That testicle was lousy. It hurt and it ached for years (could I have had cancer that long?). It was smaller and rode higher than the right one. It always got caught in the seams of my jeans. Good riddance!

    - The doc left some accessory stuff in the sac. I have no idea what it is, or if it is swelling that will eventually go away. Still, I'm glad its there, because most of the time I look 'whole'.

    - Women really don't have much of a clue about testicles. They really don't care if you have one or two, as long as you can get hard and they can enjoy you. In summary, I think balls are strictly a guy thing...we use them to impress ourselves and other blokes, much like sports cars or watches are to us, or designer handbags are to the ladies.

    - The week or so after my I/O...spontaneous erections were completely absent from my life. No morning wood, no nothing. I was so concerned about it I asked my doc. He said not to worry, it comes back so...

    - If you have some problems after I/O, don't worry, it comes back .

    Best of luck to all of you!

    It's very likely that it's a hematoma that will be reabsorbed and disappear in time.
