Latest update....after some consultation via phone and fax (I am on vacation, returning today), my urologist agreed to the 30/1 bimix. Franck's processed the order yesterday and sent it to me today, so I should receive it early next week.
Fingers crossed that it works for me without any significant side effects. I already have mild Peyronie's (since age 33), so I will be looking closely for that symptom, of course.
I think....knock on wood....that I can make sure to avoid priapism by starting with a very low dose. Of course, from reading posts here, it seems a low dose for some causes a multi-hour erection in others.
Any way, I am very excited and hope things work out ok....if not at first, then after trying a few different dosages to see what works best for me.
Thanks to all of you for your advice and support.
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
