Interesting that not long ago I started a thread on here, asking those who were using injections why they were doing so. I'd had enough success with the pump that I figured "why mess with success". Well, this week I had my third surgical follow-up and second post-surgery PSA. What do you know but when I told the nurse practitioner that I was getting not results with Cialis she asked if I'd like to try Muse or the tri-mix injections. I signed up for the injections.
First injection in the office was "10", whatever that means. Modest response. The nurse-practitioner suggested I start with maintenance doses of 10 and "get lucky" injection amounts of "20" and showed me where that is on the syringe. Was planning on trying my first "at home" injection last night but decided against it. Now I'm looking forward with anticipation to the experience, though last night I was reading about someone who had an uncomfortable four and a half hour erection after a "20" injecction.
So, it makes me wonder what amounts of trimix you all are using. Also, does the amount required correspond to factors such as body mass or age? I'm 54, weight about 190 lbs.
Oh, also, how deep do you insert the needle? All the way to the bottom of the syringe?
Thanks for any info you can share...
