Had rp 15 mos. ago, post surgery effects, blithering idiot.
Have incontinence, and the bad impotent....Have tried viagra, cialis, cactus root, tree bark, boiled possum inards.....you name it, no success...Yes egos are bigger than forever..I would never imagine men's brain power is not only in the cranium.
My girlfriend is getting short on patience and I dont know how much longer she will wait for the command performance....So I need feedback from anyone that has had an IMPLANT. Spill your guts....Some call it the implant to heaven.....What to do....What to do.....
I know the institutions are ready and waiting...They dont wear white coats anymore, tuxedos is the dress code.....

Would appreciate any feedback....Thanks.....I must go take a nap now......

I know the feeling - - been there done that. I ended up using the shots. Works pretty good. Incontinence gets in the way though. Major leaks during orgasm

Hi there

Just like you had a RP 15 months ago am 62 now and have tried all the pills etc no luck but do have a wonderful girlfriend who is understanding. She doesn't want me to have another surgical procedure ..have had radiotherapy and a hernia since RP. So I have tried a vacuum pump. Cheap £170 UK Sterling probably the same in dollars. Works a treat lasts a lifetime and no side effects. The company is Augusta Medical and the product is SomaTherapy-ED. The number is 1-800-827-8382.

Hope this helps and works. Good shagging.

I have not had an implant, but a brother did, but not because of prostate cancer. He had his because of heart problems. For a time, his new abilities were all he could talk about - it worked fine and he was glad he had it done. But now, he's 72 and while the implant still works fine, his heart is even worse. He can't do anything even when he's "pumped up" now.

For me, I have had prostate cancer and am basically impotent, but am not going to have the implant. One reason: I'm told that some length is lost due to the procedure, and I would rather keep what I've got, the way it is, than lose any more. I'm shorter already because of the surgery.

There is a medication called Trimix which is an injection....It works! There are very few pharmacies that mix it...You need a script from your urologist

Trimix is what I also used, and yes, it does work most of the time. I had to get it from my doctor's office, and sometimes, I think I got a bad "batch" as there were times it did not work.

I had a RP about 11 months ago. The only medications that work are viagra(sometimes) and MUSE (all the tieme). MUSE is a supository that is painless and effective -- talk to your doctor.
