I was told the nerve bundles were largely embedded in the enlarged prostate, so I lost the great majority of them on both sides. There seems to be some blood getting down there, some response at times during stimulation, some very partial night time erections, nowhere near usable.
I've ordered a pump and don't know really what to expect from it, considering the nerve loss.
Great support from my wife.
We've been able to enjoy sex. I'm grateful to still have desire, and orgasms. I'm frequently knocked over by the sense of loss, which I'm sure is not a unique experience.

I just had a weird experience with the Vacurect pump. A sort of bubble appeared on one side of the penis, as if the all the blood had been directed to that one spot. I removed the pump immediately and tried again, with little result but at least no repetition of the problem. Has anyone experienced something like this?

You don't give the exact location, but I had a small part of the scrotum get inside once, creating what appeared to be a bubble, with some sharp, pulling pain in  the msame side testicle.  If the 'bubble' was at the base, it may have been some scrotum skin.  As far as just one whole side of the penis filling up, creating a bubble, I wonder if that is even possible, considering the nature and action of that part of the penis anatomy.  Maybe others will join in if they have had this experience.

I don't think it was part of the scrotum, since I didn't have any of those sensations, and it didn't look like any scrotum tissue had been sucked in. The whole thing makes me leery of the pump.
