Hi Rolly, Welcome to HW, sorry to meet you in such circumstances....17 months without any sign of an erection does seem like a long time. We are usually told 12 to 18 months on average, up to 3 years for the unusual cases. So that makes you at the top of the average cases,if that makes you feel any better.
Some questions you can answer to help us help you.
1. Did you have nerve sparing surgery?
2. Have you done any Erectile Dysfunction rehab yet, such as ED (Viagra, etc) pills, the VED penis pump, or injections?
3. Are you willing to do some of the above in #2 to begin a rehab program?
You are at the right place for information, advice, and support, if you want it. We may not take the place of your doctors, but we can offer support and concern for your situation, if you want it. How about posting back here, after making a signature out, detailing some of the what has been your history, like others do here. JUst click the Control Panel above, then Edit Profile, go to the bottom of that and fill out the Signature section. Again, stick around, ask all you want, nothing is too personal here....lol
