Treatments for ED include:

  • Sildenafil (Viagra)
  • Tadalafil (Cialis)
  • Vardenafil (Levitra)
  • Penile injectable medications such as alprostadil
  • Vacuum pump (A device that uses suction to achieve an erection and an elastic ring to maintain it.)
  • Penile implant


You can get this as a result of:

  • Hormone therapy (especially the combination of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonists and anti-androgen therapies)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation to the prostate (less common with newer, focused techniques)

To ease the symptoms, drink 8 to 12 cups of clear liquids every day, such as water, apple juice, or sports drinks.

Also, adjust your diet. Eat five to six small meals a day rather than three large ones. And eat foods that are easy on the stomach, such as:

  • Skinless broiled or baked chicken
  • Rice
  • Boiled potatoes

Avoid foods that can irritate your intestines, such as:

  • Milk and dairy products
  • Spicy foods
  • Caffeine
  • High-fiber foods
  • Greasy foods

Ask your doctor if you need any supplements.


The cancer or some treatments for it (radiation, hormone therapy, chemo, or treatment vaccines) can make you feel wiped out. If you’re fatigued, you don't have energy to do your usual activities. It helps to:

  • Exercise every day.
  • Eat a nutritious diet and stay hydrated.
  • Get enough rest.
  • Focus on your most important tasks and delegate.

If your cancer treatment gives you anemia (low red blood cell counts), that will make you fatigued, too. Your doctor may recommend supplements, drugs, or blood transfusions to help.

Nausea and Vomiting

This often happens during chemotherapy. Both may also be side effects of vaccine therapy. The following tips can help:

  • Eat a light meal on treatment days.
  • Stick to foods and drinks that are easy on the stomach.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes.
  • Talk to your doctor about drugs you can take before your treatment to help prevent and control nausea and vomiting. If one doesn't work, there are others you can try.
  • Also, ask your doctor about complementary approaches, such as acupuncture, hypnosis, biofeedback, and guided imagery, which may also help manage side effects (but don't replace standard medical care).
