Well, saw my Uro doctor yesterday for my seven month follow-up appointment, (RRP on May 04, 2009).  The good news, I still remain a member of the Zero Club !!!  That PSA is staying in the good range.  WHEW !!!!.
 
The doc and I discussed the problems that I continue to experience with the Bimix injectables, as I continue to develop pretty significant pain that occurs about twenty minutes after performing the injection.  His suggestion was to take a full dose of Cialis about 1 hour before injecting, and cut down on the dosage of the Bimix.  His thoughts on this is to let the Cialis work in concert with the Bimix to get to a functional erection without the pain factor. He believes that the higher dosage of Bimix that I have been using (0.40) is what is producing the gential pain that is occuring each and every time.
 
So, I guess when I get back to the ranch this weekend (I'm working in Boise this week), we will give it a "shot", and see if it helps.
 
Just wanted you all to know, you can't kick me out of the ZERO club quite yet.

Hi Dallas,
Great news! I sure do like those zero's. Sounds like you are on the right track on the ED trail also and good luck with that.

Do you live in Idaho? I have spent a little, not near enough, time there. I had one of my best friends that worked construction in the area and I had the chance to do some fishing around Lewiston. I love that country!

again great news,
