Desperate Wives: There Is Help Out There

I have been getting letters from distraught women whose relationships with their husbands have suffered since their treatment for prostate cancer.  This subject needs to be discussed extensively, but for starters, I have compiled a list of potential resources.  (Excuse me if this is not the King’s English, but I have rushed this through because of the urgency of the topic.)  If you know of a resource I haven’t mentioned, please contact me. 

Malecare at A must read website. The best and most frequently updated prostate cancer information, anywhere.

“Saving Your Sex Life After Prostate Cancer“, Dr. John Mulhall.  (Hilton Publishing, available at for $12.21.)   A must-read.  Dr. Mulhall knows his stuff.  As an expert in Sexual Medicine at MSKCC, he treats about 800 PC patients a year. . Website of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America.  That’s where I look first for referrals to ED specialists of all kinds (MDs, social workers, nurses, etc).  There is also a lot of general information on their webstite for people struggling with ED.,  Sexual  Dysfunction Association, UK.  They have good “fact sheets” on various subjects relating to PC and ED.  We in the U.S. need to catch up with them.
