Hi....haven't been here in awhile. I'm a prostate cancer survivor, going on 5 years. Still have incontinence issues even after male sling failed. I really haven't pursued having my ED problems tended to because of the embarrassment of the leakage issues. My wife has been a real trooper, especially since we haven't had sex in nearly 5 years!!! I'm now retired and I think i would like to look into trying to help my ED problems now. I have been thinking about checking out the Vacurect system. It looks pretty simple to use and I was wondering what some of you thought about it from personal experiences. I read some very old posts about it on here, but haven't seen anything written in the last couple of years. Is this a good method? Hopefully, I haven't waited too long and can find something to gain back the ability to have erections. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated. You can reply here or send me an email at: enniswb@epix.net.

The specific VED system is far less important than finding the right rings that work with your anatomy. All the pumps will do the same thing. Where the rubber meets the road (like the pun?) is with the constriction 'system' as they call it. There is no end to the opinions of battery vs manual and what form they take. look at all the ones at Vitalitymedical and you'll get an idea.

Bill,
You might want to check out Paul's Frank Talk site above (listed in his signature). He is obviously reluctant to mention it but there is a lot of information there on different pumps, procedures, pills and pricks (injections). The discussions there are very informative and, well, "frank" and might not be considered suitable for a site such as this one that is indexed by search engine robots.
Speaking of which. You might want to enter your email either in your profile or edit your posting above to disguise your email address. You don't want spambots grabbing it.

I use a VED for exercise and to keep blood flowing. Trimix injections work for me. I still leak even with an erection. When I buy condoms, I feel like a teenager again.
You can email me if you have questions.
