Surgery was March 26, 2013, and everything is good so far, except ED, which was expected.
So, I got my urologist to prescribe Trimix for me two weeks ago at my appointment with him. My urologist also made another appointment with me for about
two weeks later, and told me at that time he would inject me the first time. I took the prescript
ion to the compounding service and went home with it.
Well, I couldn't wait, and have injected 4 times already. I'll go in Monday for my appointment and see what he says about
the results so far. I know it was a bit risky, but I started low, after much reading up on it.
1st time: Tuesday
.003 .03cc (3 units)
5% erection, no pain
2nd time: Saturday
.005 .05cc (5 units)
20% erection, no pain
3rd time: Tuesday
.010 .10cc (10 units)
90% erection, lots of pain, both subsided in one hour
4th time: Saturday
.008 .08cc (8 units)
80% erection, moderate pain, both subsided in 30 minutes
The two erections were enough to be useful, but the pain, especially the first pain, was close to being unbearable for about
My question is about
the formula; the pharmacist at the compounding service told me that he makes 3 strengths, and mine was the lowest.
This is the information from the bottle:
25 mcg alprostadil: papaverine 18.75mg: phentolamine .625mg
What is the likely suggestion I would expect the urologist to prescribe to alleviate the pain, but still provide for the useful erections?
