Guess someone was thinking like me when you created your name here...
Anyway, glad you found the site. Can't speak to the success then subsequent failure, as i did not have success with erections following surgery. But my doc started trimix injections 6 weeks post surgery which was far less difficult than i ever thought it could be. Honestly, it becomes pretty easy to do and the results give you oppty to carry on your sex life which is no small thing.
Personally, the meds...levitra, cialis, viagra... all make me feel lousy...headachey, stuffy nose, flushed, muscle aches, etc. The trimix does the trick and no side-effects. At first there was local aching from it, but after about a month that dissipated. I also switched to bimix which helped the aching. Accidentally i did the trimix again (bottles next to eachother in the fridge), and no aching, so now i have plenty of "fun in a bottle" to use up!
42 yo. now
5/07 PSA 4.65 at routine physical
6/07 biopsy positive for cancer...Gleason 3+4...diagnosed at 41 y.o.
6/07-9/07 manic research and interviews with physicians across the country in search of the "right" decision. I went to Mass General in Boston, Loma Linda, University of Chicago and Northwestern.
9/17/07 - Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy Surgery at Northwestern Memorial in Chicago by Dr. William Catalona. Thankful the father of the PSA test was right here in Chicago.
Post op pathology was Gleason 3+4 with negative margins, no seminal vesicale involvement, no lymphatic or vascular invasion, bladder and urethral free and tumor volume was 5% of 27.3g.
9/27/07 - Catheter removal...let the games begin...
12/07 - Threw out the pads. I only had to use 1 pad per day for protection against minor drips.
I started Trimix 8 weeks after surgery with success.
I hope someday I won't need injections, but I hope more that my PSA stays at 0 forever.
