Some men claim that they have achieved a full recovery within weeks after surgery; others say that it took them 18 to 24 months before they had a full recovery. Others say that they have a good enough recovery that with the aid of the ED pills they have a fully successful erection.
I ended up with ED and never did have full recovery either. I tried every option available (i.e.: pills, pump, shots, etc…) and finally ended up getting a penile implant which ended up being the best choice for me.
I now have a near normal sex life. If you have tried all the other options available and they don’t end up being a successful option for you, there is still hope.
With a penile implant I now can function like when I was a much younger man. I can perform whenever I chose, wherever I want and as often as I wish. I don’t have to worry about filling a prescription or taking a pill and waiting for it to take effect. I don’t have to detract from an impromptu moment by having to take along my equipment or getting it out and getting pumped up before hand (and dealing with a truly abnormal feeling erection). In order to react to the moment, I no longer have to go to the refrigerator to get my meds and needles, prepare the shot, take the injection and then waiting for things to work (or wait for it to stop working after things are completed).
My wife of 37 years used to call me “Ever Ready Ted”. Now I am living up to her expectations!!
I know that some men think this is not an option that they would never chose, but it has been the best thing for me and I am greatly pleased that I made this choice.
