I had radical prosatectomy March 2009. I have tried Viagra and Cialis with no success.
The penile injection sounds like it would kill the mood. I am 63 and wish I could have intercourse with my wonderful wife of 38 years like we used to. Bless her, she is understanding and told me that we have had a great 35 year sexlife and she is glad just to have me by her side.

Has anyone tried the penile pump and what was your experience?

Thank you for any information.

Have a blessed day.

Hi there JR1949.
In my opinion It's worth a try. I've been using one for about 6 weeks and I can say that the results are much better than expected. You can have sex quite easily once you have worked out how to use the pump and ring properly although it can be a little painful when the ring is first released from the pump body to your penis. Erection can be large but does not match in firmness - practise makes perfect!
Let us know how you get on.

Hello again JR,

It sounds like your wife is a very smart, caring & loving woman.  How lucky you both are to have such an open and honest relationship with good two way communications!

I did a quick keyword(s) search using the CSN search box feature (upper right on PCa home page).   It listed 44 results/threads, including the following link that you might find helpful:

I hope that you and your wife continue to be well and cancer free.   

All the very best,

mrs pjd
