Just got home from my doctors visit. 22 months, PSA test .03. Yippee for that.
We had a good discussion about
the ED. He said that what you have at 15 to 18 months is normally what you will have, period. So, unless miracles happen, what I got is what I got, which isn't anything....
We agreed to continue the weekly routine of pills, pumps and pricks. But more for the reason of having something constructive to do than for any real expectation of improvement. I had been having a lot of erotic dreams lately and combined with the Viagra which I take around 3am, there were absolutely no response. Where there should a good erection, with the dreams and the pills, there was nothing. Well, who knows, it could happen. In the meantime, since the Trimix is working so well the past few months, he wrote a prescript
ion for a 10 ml vial, 30mg/1mg/20mcg with refills and said to enjoy...lol Such a kidder, he is...
I checked the local, newly
opened Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy, which lists Compounding on its sign and they do Trimix and Bimix compounding. The 5 ml Francks' of Florida cost of $94 shipping and chilling is just a couple dollars less than the cost of twice the amount, and available locally. So looks as if our love life will be one determined by modern medicine from now on.
I'll admit the 2 years mark was a real psychological marker for me and am glad I got thru it without anything reoccuring...
