This link was sent to be by another pilot, and was written by still another pilot.  Not that that in itself carries much importance, but it seems to have  found its way into the Ladies Home Journal several years ago.  (It was written just as Viagra was being introduced.)  It's worth a look if you're in this situation.  :-)   :-)

Hi Aviator,
Thanks so much for posting this article. All too much of it hit home to me. Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. And like the author discovered, you think about what's really important.
June 2005 - Age 53 PSA 4.8 at regular physical
October 2005 - After several rounds of anti-biotics, PSA 5.2 at Urlogist
November 2005 - Biopsy negative
July 2006 - PSA 5.9 at regular Physical
October 2006 - After several more rounds of anti-biotics PSA 8.1
November 2006 - Second biopsy - Positive
December 2006 - Gleason (3+4=7), Tumor T1c, CT Scan and Bone Scan Negative
January 2, 2007 Robotic Prostatectomy, University of Rochester Medical Center - Tumor confined but larger than thought, only one nerve able to be spared. Margins clear.
February 2007 - Three to four pads a day, no erection with viagara.
March 2007 - Down to two pads a day, had first intercourse with Erecaid pump and bands, otherwise still flat tire.
April 2007 - First Post-Surgical PSA 0.02 and a great relief! Down to one pad a day. Still unable to achive erection without pump.
May, 2007 - Still one pad a day, even try a smaller pad on occasion. Slight improvement on the ED.

Aviator, thank you for posting this article. I cried while I laughed, especially about the weiner and frankfurter. yes, we have to laugh so we don't cry, or we laugh while we cry, or we laugh after we cry. whatever..... there is more to life than sex. now Jeff and I have to convince ourselves of that.... or at least of what sex used to be versus what it is now and in the future. kat
