I've had MS since 1977 but have not really had any debilitating symptoms since the origianal diagnosis. The one issue I have suffered with has been a lack of erectile response. Over the years I've tried all the oral tablets to no avail but did receive a good response to injections. My particular situation however, did not allow me to orgasm during intersourse without much manual stimulation.
I had a 3 piece penile implant in September of 2010. I wish the recovery period had been pully explained since I did not realize that I would be fully inflated and erect for the next 7 weeks. Needles to say, it was very uncomfortable to walk around with an erection all the time. I was never able to be comforatable with it and found myself constantly adjusting my penis. After the original 8 week post op recovery (with MD visits weekly to check for signs of infection and scarring - neither of which hapened), the doctor showed me how to use the scrotal pump device whjich was very easy to do. He also reviewed the defaltion process which has never been easy for me but I do think I'm getting more acquainted with it now.
As far as the sexual performance aspect of it, I'm not sure it's really much different than I remember it to have been before. The obvious difference is it can stay erect for a much longer period than before the surgery when I would be limited to one injection per day. I must admit to not following that rule all the time to the point of injecting two to three times per night when the situation required it. It feels the same as I remember although I'm not able to climax during intercourse due to diminished sensitivity. I'mstill able to cum with manual stimulation. Unfortunately, my partner during this time period had a hysterectomy which left her with pain during penetration and that has continued to the present day. Our sexual relationship has been a lot different due to our shared issues.
I suppose my comment or question of the day to others that have had the surgery would be do you find your orgasmic response to be the same as it was before your disease took away your ability to sexually respond? Youir comments or thoughts (from males or females) would be appreciated. For the ladies involved with anyone who has had an implant, what are your feelings about the device? Does it feel any different? Is his response changes at all?\
