Recommendations for VEDs

I am wondering if anyone would have any thoughts they would care to share on their experiences with VEDs. I am 50 yrs old. Diagnosed with Prostate CA in April 2010. Da Vinci prostatectomy June 8, 2010. Everything was within the margins. I am almost totally dry so am very happy about that. Now I am concentrating on the ED. I am taking Cialis 5 mg every other day. I am concerned with getting the needed blood flow to the penis and have been researching the VEDs. How do you know which one would be best? Has anyone had any luck? Any recommendations on those that work well?

Thank you for your opinions.

My surgeon recommended the Response II from Augusta Medical Systems. I met with the rep in the doctor's office. It does get blood flowing for me and duplicates my pre-surgery rigidity. However, everyone is different so I can only speak for me.

Congrats on getting dry... My surgeon (William Catalona) and my Oncologist Urologist both recommended tri-mix or bi-mix injections 2-3 times a week plus 5 mg of cialis daily after my 3rd week after surgery...I must admit it was nice to be able to get an erection and intercourse 3 weeks after surgery but going on 5 months of injections I am getting tied of it...but there is no doubt that blood is getting into your penis with the injections and I am looking forward of stopping the injections in the future..

I did try the pump a few times but did not like it and it a “door stopper” now.

Best to all
