confused   my husband has chosen to have the penile implant however seems afraid to try it since he has had the surgery.  Has anyone had this experience? Not sure how to handle this.

  :-)   Hi ~ Weezy,

 

If you give our members a little history (see signatures from other members as a guide)…. they can see where you’ve been and where you are today.  Share with us the path you’ve followed since diagnosis… this will help members to respond and will help others in the future as they get to this point in their path.  This is a very important topic and we are glad you joined us.

 

My 1st thought without any history is what I read in Dr. Scardino’s Prostate Book

 

Quote from page 382: 

Since it can take two to three years to recover erections completely after radical prostatectomy, men should postpone permanent interventions like penile implants until their level of recovery is clear.  Partial erections may continue to improve gradually.  If a man has no hint of erections eighteen to twenty-four months after surgery, he will not recover workable erections.  At that point, an implant is reasonable.

 

Stay with us!  In New Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
