Dry orgasms are to be expected. The prostate is the main contributor to the fluid part of the ejaculate, and with that gone, you can expect to be mostly dry. If you meant "dry" in the sense of no urine, then well done -- another milestone! Many of us leak some urine at orgasm to start with, as I did. But after a few months, no sign of that now.

I can't really help with the quick draw -- but some here might see it as an advantage! Before surgery I always tended to be a premature ejaculator. But post-surgery, I am quite the opposite, requiring a lot of stimulation to reach orgasm, and if anything last too long. This is using (penile) injections. On the few occasions I have used the pump for intercourse, I have found that I come more quickly, so for me, that may be a plus factor -- but not necessarily for you!

So you may find that injections slow you down, if you can get over the natural apprehension we all have towards them at first.

One of the side effects of Viagra (I think!) is headaches -- can you rule out the Viagra as your source of headaches?
Age 63 at diagnosis, now 64.

After a learning curve, Bimix injections (0.2ml) are working well. VED also works but we find it inferior to Bimix.
14 months: Occasional nocturnal erections.

How often are you having an orgasm? It should be every day at this point. While there is no longer a build up of fluids in the prostate or vesicles, your hormones are still functioning and sexual response will be faster if you are having no regular ejaculations.

slow things down exactly the same way you would have before surgery - JO an hour or two before sex, use some cream to limit sensation. If you're not using an erection for intercourse, then can you simply avoid stimulation during sex until you are ready to come?
Piano has some good advice. the induced erections are often less sensitive than natural ones. partners often love the longevity of these!
