Hello, I am going in next week and the uro wants to get me started on some ED fixes. Last time he saw me he gave some literature describing all the options (shots, muse, pump, some type of tree bark stuff and the oral meds). I plan to begin with the pump since I am prone to having side effects to most meds. Levitra and cialis both had bad ones for me.
Anyway, what do I expect - do I get a Rx for this pump and buy it or does the urologist office sell it to me? Is there a learning curve to operating it?
Thanks to all for the great advise over the last few months.

You can buy one on eBay, $20-$30, This is almost identical to the $300 "medical" models offered in the doctors office..


You might try starting off on a 25mg dose of Viagra, seeing how you react to that, then slowly working your way up to a "Full Monty" 100mg dose..Available from overseas sources for a fraction of the U.S. price..

What happens greatly depends on your uro's office. Mine even had hire units available -- if they hadn't all been out at the time I inquired. Units bought through the office were top quality and expensive.

I ended up buying a cheaper model from an adult store, with the intention of later upgrading. However 3 years on and after a few running repairs, the cheapie is still going well.

Operation is easy, but expect a learning curve, particularly if you will use it for sex.

I went with the expensive prescribed version, because the insurance paid for it, it was shipped without having to stand in a store, and I was far over all my deductible and co-pays. It was theoretically out of network, but because my ins. has a pharmacy associated, and they should have provided it, but did not, it was allowed as in network.
The Uro did not sell them directly, just wrote the prescription. They did have a nurse who worked for the provider who comes in at intervals and will talk throgh the process. I settled for reading the instructions.
Can't say if it is better than the cheaper versions, but I never needed one before, so its all new to me. It works.
I did have to pay shipping & handling -

I have tried both, and personally I think the osbon system thats the expensive one you need a script for is well worth it! the constriction ring system is the real trick to the system and no one else I have seen comes close to the rings with the osbon system...this is not a paid advertisement for osbon
