The head of sexual medicine at Mt. Sinai told me that there are NO classes, chapters, instruction - anything on ED that doctors get in med school. So, virtually all doctors have no clue what to do about
ED. The know the drugs, pumps, injections, etc, but they are not equipped to discuss them. Even urologists get just the clinical treatment.
I even asked one doc if he had ever tried a pump. He laughed. I told him there are tons of tricks to getting it right. He was interested and sort of grateful.
then, there is the sad truth, that doctors, being normal guys too, probably have some pretty complex issues and feelings about
ED themselves. They are men, and without special training in ED are also confronting their own mixed feelings about
it. I don't blame them. But it shows a huge gap in the whole medical community about
treating ED. We wonder why men don't talk about
it with their doctors more? The docs have a hard enough time on their own! LOL.
This is basically the reason why my life has now been taken over with the world of ED. I didn't mean for this to happen - it took me over. I sure did not go seeking it!
