This is a personal question that just dawned on. Sex AND HAI, weird? Doable? Top, bottom? Lol forgive me please just plain curiosity!
I've always thought it's weird that oncologists never discuss sex or anything related to intimacy with patients. The most they did for me was a short discussion about harvesting some eggs and freezing them before I started chemo... BUT then they discovered I was Stage 4 so why bother?
Surgical scars, thinning hair, chemo-induced fatigue, nausea, and neuropathy hardly function as aphrodisiacs, but the HAI pump didn't change a thing. However, I will say this: at the end of treatment there is nothing more restorative to one's sexual vitality that realizing you've beat cancer down to a non-detectable level in your body! And (fortunately) I found a partner who thinks abdominal and chest scars are sexy.
