Will having radiation seeds implanted for prostate cancer affect my sexual performance?

Yes: One of the early effects of a seed implant of the prostate is the the ejaculate volume will decrease to almost nothing. It typically does not interfere with erections at east early on but with time, there is an increased chance of impotence that is thought to be a radiation effect.
