    Has he gone through any changes that would explain the aversion to touching you?  Has he joined a new church, started taking part in a new group/bible-study?  Reading any books on the subject?  Maybe it’s the thrill of the forbidden that had him obsessed before, and now that you’re married, it’s not as thrilling.  I would wait until the physical issues are resolved and then start tackling the mental ones.  Otherwise, he might feel as if he can’t do anything right.

    When he goes to the doctor, if he hasn’t already, make sure he gets a heart screening done (cholesterol, triglycerides, etc.) because ED is one of the first outward symptoms of heart disease.  The arteries going to the penis are the smallest in the male body and clog the fastest.  The ED could certainly be a side-effect of his medicine, but best to be safe.
