mad  Purchased the Vacurect system and it does perform as well as the other one as far as creating an erection,,,,,,I have, however,   have found the rings very uncomfortable during erection and difficult to remove until quite sometime after intercourse. We have followed the directions, using plenty of lubricant and the proper removing proceedure. Not only has it caused pain during erection around the edge of the ring (sharp end) but has caused abrasions during removal. Has anyone experienced this and what are we doing wrong?

I tried the Vacurect pump with the discs also, and found them to be painful and not very useful.  The disc's are designed to keep the scrotum and assorted other body parts out of the pump.  Like you said, it does, but at the price of being difficult to put on and even more so to remove.  One trick they mentioned that I missed for a while was to gently squeeze the erection to push the blood back out, then to remove the ring.  I found that with enough grip, I could semi-stretch the disc for removal after squeezing the blood out somewhat. 

I bought a set of soft silicone rings, and use them with the Vacurect pump.  With a little practice, I can put a silicone ring on the end of the pump and place it on the penis when needed, with no pain, pinching, or problem.  Removal can be immediate, by grasping the wings and pulling out and off.  Here's the link.

or the full one below.  It wraps, so you will probably have to copy and paste, maybe

 
I got the kit with the plastic cone, for later, if and when I don't need the pump anymore, but might still need the rings.   lol  These rings work really well, and don't remain stretched after use, but shrinks back to their normal size for reuse.  they are a big step beyong the Vacurect disc's.  I'd recommend them to anyone with the hand strength and dexterity to apply them to the end of the Vacurect pump.

James,

My impression was that you use injections for intercourse and the pump only for therapy.

Have you gone back to using the pump for intercourse also?

Nerve-sparing, open prostate surgery November 13, 2007
Gleason score 9, PSA 14
Biopsy result - 9 of 12 sticks showed cancer
Despite high Gleason score, cancer was confined to the prostate
Possible post-surgery radiation therapy...decision likely in late April 2008, depending upon PSA at that time
Unrelated surgery January 2008 delayed incontinence recovery, which is now showing good signs of improvement (fraction of a pad a day as of March 2008)
Began using Viagra 3 times a week December 2007 to stimulate blood flow
Began using Osbon Erec-Aid Esteem manual pump for therapy mid-February 2008
Will probably begin using bimix injections in addition to Viagra and pump in May 2008

No, I suppose I should have said "I used" for past.  lol   I seldom use the rings now, once in a while I will put one on before showering and remove it after, to just add a little more stretching and such.  Nothing on a regular basis.  I continue to use the pump without the rings twice a day.

James C,

I admire your discipline and time management.

I use the pump for therapy, without rings, MOST days but have never managed to use it twice a day.

As I told my wife, I get no particular joy from using it, but feel that I NEED to do it.

Never thought I would say this, but I am looking forward to injections.  I hope I do not have false hopes there.

I use the ErecAid, the rings on that are OK. The erection isn't always maintained, though. I find that you just get used to the difficulty in removing the rings :-\

Bimix #3 is the first one my ED specialist prescribed, which is 0.5 phentolomine / 30 papaverine. To get anything usable, I needed 2 cc of it, and the pharmacist gave me 10 cc per fill at $145 a pop.

Bimix #1 is the most recent one I got, which is 1 phentolomine / 30 papaverine. I used .5 cc today (with some Viagra) with great success. Same cost as Bimix #3 (10 cc at $145). So if this one works consistently for me, it will be much more economical
