Morning all.
 
My husband finally got up the nerve and we went to the dr. last week and he started him on tri-mix injections for erections.  He started with 30cc (in a diabetic needle) in the office and after about 20 mins he had somewhat of an erection.
 
He told us to go home and next time use 50cc which we did this morning.  Oh my, didn't think we'd ever see the little guy at full attention again......
 
Enter the problem.... now that he's up.. he doesn't wanta come down!  It's been almost 2 hrs and my hubby says it is quite uncomfortable especially at the base.  Obviously, next time, we'll cut back to say 40 or maybe even 35... but, in the meantime,,,
 
He's trying an ice pack as we speak.  Dr. advised us if it doesn't go down after 4 hrs we need to go to emerg.... I really hope that is not the case and wondered if any of you have any suggestions.... Never thought we would have this problem.. matter of fact, never thought he would have the nerve to do the injection... and I am very proud that he does and without hesitation.  Sheesh, I can hardly watch.
 
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hey SeekingBliss,

My doc gave way too much Trimix to start too. I take some Sudafed after the fun is over and it usually helps the erection end.

Your quantities sound way to big. I use a diabetic syringe also and it only holds .5 cc when its full. My Trimix vial only contains 5 cc. I use .03 cc in each injection. Each mark on the syringe is .01 cc or 1 unit. I have found that taking 50 mg of Viagra a few hours before injecting myself and using only a very small amount of Trimix gives great results with no pain. They usually last about an hour.

Good luck...

I'm sure that it is .03cc and .05 cc.  Next time it is .035cc.

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

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

Sorry I was so long in getting back to the results.....

A soak in a cold tub and 2 1/2 hrs later.... things subsided!  Poor guy... and he thought he would be scared to try the injections because of the needle... it seems like nothing now!!!!

We will have to experiment with the right dose more.  Now he needs to pick the timing carefully so that he has a couple of hours to deal with the "fall out" or "up"..

Thanks for the advice on Sudafed.  I'm going to get some!
