Why has my wife lost interest in sex after breast cancer surgery?

Q: I am 40 years old and married for the last 10 years. My wife was operated for cancer of the left breast recently. I am not having any physical relations with her for the past 8-9 months, as she does not take any interest in it. I am getting frustrated. Please help.

A:It is important to empathise with her, for a woman going through a surgery of breast has a lot of psychological impacts, added on to the stress of cancer. Also depressive episodes are common, and talking to a psychiatrist helps. You need to give her time, and be supportive, and let her feel comfortable with her self and the life situation first.
