After seeing multiple suggestions on here to go to Franktalk, I posted the following over there. Still, thought it might be useful to post here as well, in case someone here who doesn’t go there has some useful info to share. Happy to post my detailed questions here, but don’t want to clog it up if this isn’t the place.
about three years post-RP. No erections since then. Well, I get about 25-40% there, I guess, but not hard enough to do much with. No luck with pills, muse, or injections. I can get it large with a pump, but only sort of hard, and it loses that hardness pretty quickly as soon as I try to do anything with it, even with a tight construction ring on it. With no ring, it loses it immediately.
Just started digging through the forum in my quest to gain info about implants as a step towards deciding if I want to go that route. It’s a daunting process, as there is more here than one could read in a lifetime, it seems. At first blush, it looks like this is anything but a straightforward decision, as there seem to be plenty of stories of long recovery times, complications, and dissatisfaction with results. I’m sure there are plenty of positive stories as well, but I imagine people are more likely to want to talk about the problems. Also, it seems there are important and irreversible choices to make regarding doctors and implant types.
I’m tempted to post a list of my questions/concerns. I know that all of them must have been asked and answered in here somewhere, probably several times, but I’m not sure how to efficiently find what I’m looking for. Thoughts?
I kept seeing Dr. Eid’s name come up, and I thought “Hmm...maybe it makes sense to go to a recognized leader in the field for this, even if I have to travel; ask him all my questions, make a decision, and let him carry out the procedure”. Then I realized that while I could handle the cost of travel, my insurance won’t cover me outside my home state, which is Colorado (though I haven’t checked to see if insurance will cover this at all anyway). Might still be worth doing the phone consult with Dr. Eid in any case.
Thoughts on this?
Does anyone have a recommendation of an excellent doctor for this in Colorado?
