I went in this morning to get the injection of Alprostadil which I think is Caverjet. Since this was my first try the nurse only gave me a .10 mg dose.  The nurse showed me how to do the injection and it was not a problem with no pain and went very easy.  I left the doctors office and had a drive home of about 1 1/2 hours.  I achieved the start of an erection at the doctors office, but in drive home it increased and continued for over four hours.  When I could see it was not going down (even after intercourse) I was ready to go to the emergency room, but on a whim I took an anti inflammatory pill I had and when I called the nurse she told me to try taking a Sudafed.  However, within a few minutes of taking the anti inflammatory pill I could feel the pressure lessening substantially.  Within 15 minutes it was back to normal and I was very relieved.  In case this happens to anyone else I thought you would like to know about my remedy.


PSA 6.6, , biopsies On October 26, 06 with 5 positive and less than 30% cancer in any of them. Gleason 3+3.

Da Vinci surgery Feb 8, 2007 at SF VA hospital. 

Home 2/9/07, Catheter out 2/16/07,

biopsies after surgery Gleason 3 + 4, T2

(waiting for all of the other pathology info)

Minimum leakage, up to urinate twice a night.

The prostate surgery agravated a hernia on my right side I did not nkow I had, surgery for that on 2-27-07 and the pain and discomfort from that was much worst than the prostate surgery.
