Today my husband had an appointment for an ultrasound with Dr. Mulhall and I went along to meet this famous doctor. He was extremely nice, generous with his time, and answered all of my questions patiently.
My husband's ultrasound was to diagnose venous leak and peyronies disease. My husband was found to have a little bit of both conditions.
Dr. Mulhall found a very small amount of venous leak. My husband had been having a problem with losing his erection while on trimix when he lay down. However, it has been getting slowly better and is now just about
gone. Dr. Mulhall said that my husband's problem is mostly adrenaline. The reason that he knew it was adrenaline was because my husband's erections were lasting for 2 hours. I thought that it was the very high level of trimix he was using that was causing this, but Dr. Mulhall said it is adrenaline. My husband is a super intense, high adrenaline type of guy so I'm sure he is right. Dr. Mulhall believes that venous leak is permanent. The net result for my husband is that if his ED resolves he will need to take a pill for sex.
My husband has a slight curvature (only about
5 degrees) that started a few weeks ago and that I connected to his use of injections. Dr. Mulhall believes that the cause of peyronies is surgery and not injections. The treatment is for my husband to wear a traction device for 2 hours every day (husband is not happy about
this). We need to closely watch to see if the curvature gets worse, and report it if it does. If it advances the treatment is intra-lesional injections of a medication (not sure which one). All this is very discouraging. Every medical treatment has a price to pay.
On the positive front we see strong signs that my husband's ED is starting to resolve. While he still has a long way to go, it seems to get better every week. This Viagra/trimix therapy that he is on is working.
