I have the Vacurect pump, but before I take the plunge (as it were) I wonder what I should expect, given my profile. I notice that some signatures mention a"real" erection with the pump months or even longer after surgery. So that probably isn't a reaslistic expectation for me now. My urologist said it's simply healthy for the penis to get the excercise, to regain the experience of drawing and holding blood. Should I expect any response? Minimal response? I don't want to get discouraged and not do something that might be good for me in the long run. Thank you all.
Age: 56 Pre-op PSA: 10.2 (one lab) or 6.4 and 6.7 (another lab) Da Vinci 9/20/07 Gleason 6 1st post-op PSA: undetectable Continence: dry some days, typically a couple of leaks per day Sexual: most nerves lost because embedded in enlarged prostate. Apparently some blood flow--some nighttime enlargement--very little response. Grateful for desire and orgasms. Just ordered pump; don't know what to expect from it. Great wife.
