Shutterbug -- Welcome to Healing Well, sorry you have reason to be here, but glad you found us.
I'll echo what others have said: Start low & go slow. Be patient. It's a good idea to try each dose more than once before moving up.
The right dose depends on each individual, their sensitivity to the medicine, and the strength of the blend of medicine in their Trimix. Trimix is a custom mix of 3 medicines according to your doctor's prescription.
My Rx is: Papaverine 30mg - Phentolamine 1mg – Prostaglandin 10mcg/ml.
I started at 0.05 cc and gradually and carefully worked my way up to 0.20 cc, which was the right amount for me. I was required to have my 1st & 2nd injections at my doctor's office; the first he administered, the second I gave to myself under his supervision.
Dr. Mulhall says, for penile rehab, you need to have erections that are penetration hardness (60%) or better for 10 to 15 minutes 2 to 3 times a week. This will maximize your ability to recover your erections back to what they were prior to surgery. He also says that your maximum duration at penetration hardness, should be no more than 90 minutes.
Realize also that ED recovery takes time, usually around 18 to 24 months.
Good luck with all aspects of your recovery -- Tigerfan
