What do we do, get an implant? For sex once/month?
Yes, that's my plan.
If I didn't already require surgery for incontinence (which affords an opportunity to get the implant at the same time, essentially for free because of out-of-pocket maxima) or if my venous leak wasn't quite so bad, then I'd probably stick with the trimix.These are all thoughts that bounce around in my head.
For a while, I was really starting to think I wanted to go the implant route. Like PDA, I have a bad venous leak which has kept me from having any great success from the injections so far. On the very best nights, it has been barely acceptable. Plus fear of Peyronie's(both my URO docs have told me that is probably not statistically a worthwhile worry, but is there anyone here with Peyronie' who did not inject 1st?) and fear of going to far unto Priapism makes it all seem one heck of a hassle for so little pay off so far. Implant to the rescue!
But on other days, I am thinking more like mspt98: if I could go to it with no trouble once or more a week, I doubt my wife would find that a blessing, unlike in years past. So, in reality it is probably going to be a lot less than that since I would much prefer she be in at least some sort of minimal mood for it. Then again if I wait for that it's probably going to be never, so really what is the point of all this trouble?
But then I think of my urinary situation. At 8 months I am much improved. But I am still bad enough that I would prefer not to have to live with this. Not to have to continue wearing a pad because I know if there is some stress- say moving a piece of furniture or whatever- and I don't remember to do a small Kegel, then I am going to squirt out enough to wet myself. Now it is down to accidents rather than the continuous of a few months ago, but that is still not what I prefer long term. So if there is not a bunch more improvement in say the next 6 months, then I would probably go with the AUS if Ins(MCare) and docs will approve. And if I could get an implant put in at the same time without a big financial hit, then maybe why not?
I guess this has gotten OT which was about
women being unable or willing to deal with our problem. If so, apologies. But may I remind Y'all of an old joke?
A sex doctor like Mulhall is giving a talk to a big audience of fellow doctors and some patients. He asks the audience for a raise of hands for the question: "How many of you have sex more than twice a week?" A few folks raise there hands, but he can't help but notice there is one guy who does not raise his hand but does have a rather huge grin on his face. Then he works his way down to only once a week, to once a month and twice a year. At first more hands are raised, then fewer hands are raised, and the one guy is still not raising his hand but still grinning. Finally the Doc asks"How many have sex only once a year" No one except the guy with the huge grin raises their hand. He jumps up and raises his hand plus waving vigorously, grinning ear to ear. The Doctor asks him " Sir, I see you only have sex once a year. But you seem really happy. May I ask, how can you be so happy when you only have sex once a year?". To which the grinning man answers "Tonight's the night!".
One more: There was a Carol Burnett (true story I saw it) reunion show. The late Harvey Korman and Tim Conway were discussing various problems of aging and sickness and Tim Conway asks Harvey if he has ever tried that new pill Viagra.
Tim: "What are your thoughts on Viagra?"
Harvey: "I think the idea of me using Viagra is like putting a brand new flag pole on a condemned building."
Oh well, try to keep laughing!
