Ok, I know I have asked alot of injection questions but I am getting closer to the time of demanding my Uro to start me on them...My next appointment is in March and if he will not start me on them I already have an appointment with another Uro that will 2 weeks later.  Here is my question...
1. Which one is best as a "beginner" to injections,  bi mix or tri mix?
2. What is the ranges of costs that everyone is paying for either of these two meds?
3. Is there any other questions I should be asking my Uro or you guys about all this? I have all the info on technique and all...Is there side effects other than the chance of scarring and priapism?

You might request that your urologist would give you the test injection in his office with Trimix. If it works well and you have no aches due to the alprostadil, it might be a good choice for you. The alprostadil caused an intense ache for the duration of the effect for me  and therefore I went to Bimix, that worked in my case about as well. Since it has no  alprostadil there was no ache. The compounding pharmacy near me charges about 50 dollars for a 5 ml bottle of Bimix providing over 10 doses. After trying it you can adjust the dose trying to find the lowest dose that works for an adequate time and does not last too long.

Hey Natural,

Congrats on your taking action to regain a sex life. Injections will work.

I pay $75 for 5 ml of Trimix. I take .05 ml per shot so I get 100 injections per vial. I use a 1/2 cc insulin syringes with a 5/16 inch, 31 gauge needle. Trimix has the advantage of requiring less medicine and of working every time.

It took quite a bit of experimenting to get the dosage right and not have any ache. I think that guys who use Trimix and then go to something just didn't give themselves time and experience. My erections are comfortable and of better quality than before PCa due to age and mild ED at that time. I'm better now than I have been for 20 years. Orgasms are wonderful. Lots better than before cancer and they last far longer.

I was very skeptical of taking shots in my favorite organ and put it off for too long. So its great that you are active in your treatment. I had a major setback when 18 months after prostate surgery I had lung cancer. The surgery and chemo put me back at ground zero. Still the Trimix worked as soon as I was well enough to use it.

Good luck,

Hey (Mr) Natural,

Since you are asking about injections may I recommend going to

You will find more info about this subject than you can imagine and you can talk "frankly" about issues that might be considered appropriate for mixed company.

Good Luck,
Jeff (Trimix #1 @ 0.32ml)
