I have not posted for a while as things have been going really well for me. I know I should post more and stay on line to help support others. I will try to do better.
Since my surgery on November 9th I have had two PSA test and both have come back undetectable. I feel really fortunate especially when I read the trouble of some of the post here.
I am also down to about one pad a day and mostly that is worn in case I sneeze, Cough or strain myself in physical activities. I feel really fortunate in these two areas.
As far as ED I still am not getting much happening in that area yet. With Viagra I get a headache and not to much happening on the other head. I have been injecting Bimix and I have gone as high as 30 units on the syringe before I can get hard enough for penetration. Yesterday my doctor prescribed Trimix I think it is called and he said that this would work better and is a stronger medicine. I was told to start low at 3 units and work my way up to what I need. Does this sound about right?
I am not complaining and I am really grateful and fortunate that I have two out of three licked pretty good for right now. I am hoping the erections will improve with more time as it has only been about five months.
I will continue to think about the many of you that are struggling in one area or the other.
Thanks for everyone support during my trip to where I am.
