Four years cancer free as of 11/14/17. Within the last 18 months, I've noticed that I no longer ejaculate when climaxing and also experience penile pain and what I believe to be a pain in the prostate area. Has anyone else experienced this? I know I'm not unique, was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what it any remedies worked?

Ya, I had a similar experience. It stopped after a year. I think a lot is happening with the area around the prostate for years after treatment. I had a reddish discharge from my penis after having a bowel movement several times. Made an appt. with my urologist to evaluate. He was set up to do a cystoscopy, but since there was no bood in my urine that day, it was cancelled. He told me not to be concerned. I haven't had that occur for several years, also.
