Overcoming Painful Intercourse
In this video, Dr. Nick talks about painful intercourse in women with bladder cancer. In women, a radical cystectomy (bladder removal surgery) might involve the removal of the anterior wall of the vagina, shortening the length of the vaginal canal and leading to some symptoms such as pain or burning before, during, or after intercourse as well as dryness. Adjusting to this change could take some trial and error, and Dr. Nick shares suggestions to ask your doctor about to adapt to these changes and prevent pain during intercourse.
