Tatt I have not tried anything other than Cialis and Levitra. But I would be interested in the feedback you get on this as I will keep all options open.

from their website the trimix-gel is like muse - you put it in the urethra - but mix it yourself so does not have to be in fridge or injected -

I am one big chicken about needles especially afte the error during my surgery. Difficult enough to allow one near my arm let alone near my penis. Just my luck, it would work but I would pass out from anxiety.

60michael,

Look into using the auto injector, you never see the needle other than filling it with the meds. You never see it enter the skin, the injector does it, a simple push of a button. No-where near as painfull as getting blood drawn from ones arm

I tried using just the needle once I would never do that again, yet have used the auto injector now a hundred or so times and no problem whatsoever
Stats:
Age: 52
PSA (2008)=1.9

Tatt,

You are barely 2 months post-catheter, and less than a month into your new prescription of daily Cialis...

Maybe you are just thinking WAY ahead, but give it a chance. Your nerve bundles (spared? I think I recall you saying they were) have been disturbed and they don't just "snap back like a coiled spring" (Walsh's phrase).

Your body has been through a trauma, it needs time to recover. Walsh writes: "Also, know that the erection you have two months after surgery is not the same one you will have two years from now." You will see this echoed through many posting at this site.

Walsh's advice on recovery of potency after RP is not just to be patient, but to "be very patient." Also, remember that the nerve function is necessary only for erection, but not for sensation, and not for orgasm.

Then again, maybe you are just thinking WAY ahead and exploring possibilities for the future...
