Being overexuberant at times, I got a little carried away with my pumping and bruised my penis...actually broke at least one blood vessel.
I believe I did this by trying to get that "little extra" firmness and length when I pumped this past week. My pump instructions say to let the skin return to normal....probably 5 to 7 days....then get back at it, which I plan to do. I broke a vessel in my penis a couple of years ago during foreplay and the doc gave me the same instructions then.....no erections for a few days until discoloration disappears.
Will try to do better now that I realize what I did wrong.....using only for therapy, not for intercourse, so no need to try to "maximize" anything any way. Hope to add injections to the mix within a month or so.
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
