"This book should be read by all men, as well as their partners, prior to undergoing prostate cancer treatment. In a clear and patient-friendly style supplemented with numerous illustrative diagrams and sidebar highlights to emphasize important “take home messages,” Dr. Albaugh discusses the risks to sexual health associated with each type of treatment for prostate cancer, and then addresses the specific risks associated with surgery, including dry orgasms and shrinkage of the penis. He then provides a thorough overview of all available treatments for erectile dysfunction, devotes separate chapters to each of these treatments, and also provides a discussion regarding the post-treatment strategy of penile rehabilitation. The book concludes with two chapters devoted to the importance of psychological well-being to normal sexual function and a very supportive chapter for the partners of men dealing with sexual dysfunction following prostate cancer treatment."
