El Tigre,

Like you, I wish had known about this site earlier, too. Your surgery was in '05 mine in 'o6. I'm sure you'll agree that the caring,
knowledgeable people here would have answered many of our questions.

Let's just be grateful we're here now

I, also want to congratulate you on your "clean checks". That's what really counts.

Good Thoughts,


El Tigre

Well Bluebird, this was unexpected. I must say, your putting this thread together for me, gave me a nice warm feeling. Thank you!

Veteran 1, I agree this place is so valuable I think every physician should be prescribing a visit here.

I will try to put together a history for anyone who might be in a similar position. For now my latest high point came just this morning. My wife and I had sex without my having to take a shot or use a pump or take a pill!!! Wonderful! Unaugmented, spontaneous love. I had just about forgotten what that felt like. She was thrilled too. Now don't get me wrong it wasn't as long lasting as in pre PC days. Nor did I get quite as firm. Happily for us, that really had no impact on our satisfaction. Maybe it is a harbinger of good things to come.
