As some of us move down the road to recovery, we find that we must deal with things that are new and confusing. I hope to to gather information from those who have tried and succeeded or not and what they have learned.
I am in my third week of injections. As it turns out, my urologist is reluctant to do anything but Caverject (by the book). That means I go to his office and he or his PA do the injection, increasing 5cc every week. 5 then 10 then 15 then 20 until the ideal amount is found. After hearing horror stories from some who are sent home with a needle and mix and no help, I am grateful for the energy my doctor is spending to make sure I am monitored and carefully supervised.
I think we have found the right dosage and now I will be sent home to inject on my own. I have some aching, but no severe pain as others have described. Things are looking up...so to speak.
Now my questions.
Do you (have you) used Caverject? At what dose? How much do you pay and where? ( I found drugstore.com at slightly less than $20 per injection.) Others were higher
Do you use trimix/bimix? How much do you pay per injection? including needles
Do you use an injector? Why? Any other helpful information?
