"From what i been told, if your having your prostate removed at a young age, its not a good idea. It affects your sex drive. Unless you have prostate cancer, thats a different story. When i mean young, i meant 50 and under."

My question to you is this: what IS an appropriate age for one to have their prostate removed? 

 

Artie, is this you again?

Mike,

 

In light of the comment that prostate removal reduces sex drive, you might find interest in this recent 2-year report. While he does not specifically report his drive, one may infer from the conclusion that there is no issue. The author of that report is a member of this network. You can contact him directly on this page.

This is consistent with what we see in many other men with histories of severe chronic prostatitis. In fact, many report that their sex lives improve after prostatectomy, partly because of the resolution of the pain and "flu-like" symptoms associated with erection and orgasm. One of our other members talks about improvement in his sex life on this video.

 

FYI.
