Singer Mindy McCready and Dr. Drew Pinsky were guests on a special edition of "The View" called "Women & Addiction" on March 17, 2010.

In an exclusive interview with People, Dr. Drew Pinsky shares the details of his secret two-year battle with prostate cancer, including the day he found out. “This could screw everything up. It was a terrible feeling,” he remembers. A bad case of prostatitis led to elevated PSA levels, which prompted doctors to do a biopsy. After months of battling the disease, Pinsky had his prostate removed last July. Now fully recovered, the board-certified internist and addiction-medicine specialist wants to add cancer survivor to his sex-rehab repertoire. He’s off to a great start, already offering up intimate details of his new sex life ... “erectile function is normal.”
