OK, I have been posting about the new trimix trials, and now have an update there, but the BIG news....6month PSA still 0.00!!!!!!  next round in the Zero club on me!
 
I tried a third round of trimix at .32 got about 80% fullness for about 20 minutes. tried .40 last night with the plump and ring technique and got   100% for 1 hour!  no pain at all no problems!  I just hope the dosage doesnt change on me now....
 
I do have a new question for anyone on Caverjet. I also got a script for Caverjet as a back up for the trimix for when I go out of the country in a month.  I got the script yesterday and it is a box with 6 vials of powder, no fluids to mix it with.  Is the dilutant supposed to come with it? or do they provide that seperately?  I did not see this issue till I was at home and by then the pharmacy was closed.

You will need bacterialstatic liquid to mix it with. Essentiallly a small vial of sterile water. Your pharmacist can give it to you. It will be in a injection type rubber sealed vial, maybe 20cc sized and will be for diluting and mixing powdered medicine. Costs a couple dollars, they should have included it in the script for free. Maintain a sterile field while using, alcohol wipes on vial tops, needles, etc. To use, take your largest volume sterile insulin syringe and add the water to the powder vial, using , probably, 1cc of water to each vial. I think I remember that right. In any case, ask your pharmacist the details, and he/she may even mix it up for you. Once mixed, keep refrigerated.

Oh, congrats on the second less than .1 zero... tongue

James you have no idea how much help you are to everyone in here! I GREATLY appreciate your advice! but, one more question please....When I mix the 1 cc and use .25 on first injection and then "dial" in to right dosage of caverjet just like with the trimix.....I mix up 1 cc and use .25 I can refridgerate the unused .75 for how long? I thought I had read once mixed you have to use within 24 hours and only if refridgerated.....Or do I have more than 24 hours to use the unused amount from the first vial? I hope that question makes since..

And again THANK YOU so very much!

natural44, I think most guys experience was it lasted around 2 weeks or so when refrigerated. The manufacturers direction is to not reuse what is left, but to dispose of the still partially filled vial after drawing out your dose. I can't tell you what to do, that's an individual choice. I always checked to make sure the med. wasn't cloudy or settling out in the bottom. I used it for 2 or 3 weeks or until used up, myself. If you inject .25cc, then you will get 4 doses per vial. That may be a week to 2 weeks supply or you may decide to throw away the .75cc. Instructions say to only used once each 24 hours and up to 3 times a week.

Cajun Jeff, can you weigh in here about the details of Caverject powder use, my memory tends to be fuzzy with details.

Here's a very good, detailed instruction page from Pfizer about using Caverject. Seems to be more layman terms than the product insert.
