I just found this site tonight. What a relief that others are out there talking about their experiences. Thanks, you guys.
I have a question, not for me but for a friend (No, REALLY!) He had what was supposed to be a nerve sparing radical protatectomy 5 years ago. Unbeknownst to my friend, his doctor took off on vacation right after, so he didn't get good follow up care for some time. He got another doctor several weeks later, but didn't know what to expect or not. At the time, he was mostly concerned with the incontinence and painful testicular swelling, but as time passed, discovered he has no erections.
At 5 years post, he's tried Viagra, Levitra, & Cealis ... all give him headaches so he has trouble taking for any longer than a few days, none has given erections. He's tried MUSE w/ very little result.
Has anyone else experienced similar but found a solution, or have any hope they can offer? He's considering an implant, but frankly, they're a uncertain about them with possibilities of malfunctions & mutilations. Anyone know of any positive experiences, good clinics or good doctors? He doesn't seem to get very far with his local urologist and there are not many to choose from in our community. He's considering traveling if it offers a chance.
