    I am doing the penile injectons twice a week and taking cialis once or twice between injections. I had surgery on April 16 and while there is significant enlargement I have not had an erection suitable for intercourse. I've had orgasims, but sometimes they are somewhat painful.  I'm ready to try the pump. All advice is welcome.
Thanks, Modog

Hey Modog,

I take 50 mg Viagra a couple of hours before injecting .05 ml Trimix and get a good erection that lasts for about an hour. If what you are using doesn't work, maybe you should see your ED guy/gal and try something else. There are several injection mixtures that do work and that stuff is too expensive to not work for you...

Age 73. Diagnosed 11/03/06. PSA 7.05. Stage T2C Gleason 3+3.
RRP 12/7/06. Nerves and nodes okay.
Pathological stage: T2C. Gleason 3+4. Cancer confined to prostate.
PSAs from  1/3/07 - 10/17/07 0.00. 
Started Tri-Mix on 8/7/07.  .05 ml and 50 mg Viagra.  It works!!!
Next PSA test on 1/15/08

If the injections are not working it is most likley due to not the right dosage or you are injecting wrong. You should get back with your urologist and get your technique checked and dosage increase. What medication are you using?
