Guys: Just a word of encouragement to all of you fellows who have severe ED and are not able to make love after surgery. Don't give up! I was lucky enough to have immediate urinary control (never even one pad) after the catheter was removed and thought that the ability to get an erection would be equally simple. But it was far from that. I used a VED, took Cialis daily, and was successful with Bimix injections. At 6 months I started Bimix and it worked well, but it was a nuisance and took time to work and then time to wear off. Although it didn't really hurt, it is something that a guy doesn't want to think about
. To be honest, I felt like a freak having to inject, but it was certainly better than nothing. I went thru one 5 cc. vial for 20 injections over the last 7 months. Just today, I bought my second vial of Bimix, but I decided to just try without an injection and see where things go.
Recently, I have been noticing some improvement with just Cialis used as prescribed by my doctor to keep the nerves growing and blood flowing and just tonight, one 50 mg. Viagra alone was able to give me "enough" to make love again. Yes, I am seeing a little blue vision when I blink and I have a stuffy nose, but I feel like a complete man again! My wife credits her "hotness" for my success, but it seems like it is just a matter of allowing enough time to heal from the trauma of surgery.
I must be honest, looking back, I was quite depressed and nearly lost all hope for natural erections after 9 months. But then I started reading postings on HealingWell Forum about guys regaining ability even after 2 years and that gave me some hope. Tonight my hope turned to reality! Guys, this road is a slow one for most of us....but don't give up. If I extrapolate my progress, I should be in excellent shape in about another 6 months, but for now I am a very happy dude! And if I don't improve one iota, I am still overjoyed!
I must also thank my surgeon for her skill and my wife for her patience. Guys-Don't give up.
