Hmmm, in order:
1. Depends, as you may only regain a certain amount of nerve repair, resulting in weak or less erections. Then again, you may return to 100%. At 6 months, still too early to tel.. Wait 18 months, then see
2. MY opinion? It's time to try injections, if you want. There's some research that says early use of injections does the most good to regain function, beyond pills and such. If you're willing to do it, and you want to do it for either therepy or for sex, then there's no reason no to. Again, my opinion.
3. I don't think you would be at risk for priaprism, at any stage, no more so than any other man. You may be the exception, but it's not something that I would worry about
....again- my opinion.
4. Yes, continuing the daily oral meds, on the maintence level is fine, it encourages blood flow and such. Lots of doctors say not to mix them with injections at full strength, some say to use them together. That's a question for you and your doctor to discuss.
Some pointers: Discuss with your Uro his experience and course of action in using injections. If he is not that familiar with it, or of the different drugs and options, as far as drug combo's (bimix, trimix, caverject, etc) then maybe you would be better served with finding a ed or reproductive expert, if one is available in your area. The main thi9ng is finding a doc who is willing to work with you, accept suggestions from patients and willing to mix it up to find the best combo for each man. Good luck, and we've got a bunch of first line users here to help guide you along your way. Just ask....
