    Sex Oh Boy

    Can you have sex without condoms after being diagnosed with as low risk prostrate cancer?
    az4peaks2 responded:
    Yes, Prostate Cancer (PCa) is not contagious. Radiation treatment with Brachytherapy (seeds), usually recommends a short period of condom use immediately after seeding.

    This is a precautionary measure that allows time for the "seeds" to firmly adhere to the body tissue, so they are not likely to travel elsewhere in the body or be expelled through the urine or ejaculate. Such movement is relatively rare. - (aka) az4peaks

    Hi John:

    Lucked out.

    A couple weeks ago I posted my condition and indicated I had a CT-Scan, Bone Scan and X-Ray. Bone Scan came back with hot spots and I needed to get an MRI. This is to remind everyone to stay positive. My MRI came back and showed the hot spots which bone scan radiologist said was suspect mets were in fact just a back getting old and some scratch and tears from sports I used to love to play.

    Get the tests and trust your instincts and the best medical help you can find. Stay positive. Enjoy the love and friendship you may get.
