I am about
2 years post op and have the curvature. I noticed it when I started having erections. It has not progressed. There is a condition called Kelami's or urethal manipulation syndrome sometimes caused by the catheter after surgery. It usually does not progress. Also, the uretha is stretched after the prostate is removed and it is reattached. As long as it does not
progress, I would not be too concerned. As far as the tri-mix, that is a pretty big dose. Maybe Jim C. will chime in and give you some advice about the injections. I use bi-mix. I usually use a vacuum pump with the restriction ring for some fullness prior to injecting. It keeps the medication trapped and makes it more effective. Just a thought.
