I have been reading all of the posts regarding ED injections and implants for awhile now. They have been very helpful to me in thinking about
Robotic surgery 10/06 @ City of Hope by Dr. Yoshida
Clear margins, etc in pathology
PSA tests have all been clear
I am fortunate to not have incontience issues, except a tiny squirt every now and then when I get excited (usually sexually).
I have not been able to maintain an erection firm enough for intercourse.
I have used all the pills. Cyalis gave me bad delayed neck and shoulder pain. They all gave me a bit more blood flow and size, but that was it.
I tried the vacumn pump with the constriction bands for 90 days (money back guarantee period), and found the bands could not hold the erection. Snap...painful too! Close but no cigar.
So I am left with the injections or implant.
My insurance doesn't cover the injections, so even if I was one of the 40-50% for whom they work, and assuming I could get used to doing it, I don't think I would be willing to pay as much as they want.
Except for a somewhat shorter erection and some sensitivity and/or engorgement issues with the head, The implant seems like the way to go.
Am I missing something based on your experiences?
How does an implant affect urination? or continence?
Thank you for supporting all of us going through this unfortunate issue.
