TheGayIntrovert,

I wouldn't get too panicked yet. Doctors and such routinely overreact. They typically react like it's a worst case scenario just to cover their asses liability wise. It could be something as simple as your T supplements or not drinking enough fluid. The medical people can be real PITA's about not telling you shit. I guess if they aren't the doctors themselves they're afraid of getting in trouble. Take a chill pill. You'll most likely be just fine. If you see your doctor again soon I'd pin him down and make him/her provide more information. Unlike some here I'm not the meek type and I expect to be informed and treated as a person. Demand it! Be firm but polite. Are you going to Nashville or are you just going to some local facilities?

I’m going to doctors in Franklin right outside of Nashville. I was seeing a urologist I liked. He spent a lot of time with me explaining things and answering questions. Very personable. He moved and his partner took on all his patients. We’ve only met once in 3 years. We just didn’t connect. I will look for someone else like you suggest. Thanks for your reply. You

Hey...new guy online for the first time. Am 71 (4/4/47), fit, with an ED issue since turning 50. Tried pills; not a needle fan by any stretch of the imagination; wife of 48 years (3/14/70) wants sex to be 'spontaneous', so no vacuum or suppository. Scheduled for a Coloplast Titan on 7/16/18 and have been online to witness Dr. Eid's videos. Ouch!! Have a relatively young urological surgeon in Mechanicsville, VA (Jason Szobota) who has done hundreds in his career with 20 over the past 12 months. I've read many of your posts and have the utmost admiration for those of you who have much more to overcome than I do. Still, I'm fearful and continue to try to educate myself with your collective experiences! I salute you and the originators of this site. Without you and them, I would be swimming in a pool of uncertainty and terror. ANY input from anyone is gratefully accepted and appreciated. Details to follow...

Hello all,

I recently found this site and have "lurked" for about a week or so and decided to sign up. Thanks to all who have helped with their comments.

I am 60 and had a radical prostatectomy via da vinci robot about 6 years ago. Getting rid of the cancer was the easy part. Surviving the survival has been the difficult part! Within 6 months of the prostatectomy, I developed a bladder neck stricture. To date, I've had 19 procedures and surgeries. I am currently on my 2nd AUS (AMS 800). Shortly after activating the first AUS I coughed twice apparently forcing urine at high velocity through the cuff of the AUS and ripped a gash in my urethra. So, yeah, ED and about 80% incontinent with the 2nd and recently activated AUS. Fun times....

I will update my profile when I find the correct location.
60 and married for 39 years. Mild ED at around 50. Radical prostatectomy at 54 and developed a bladder neck stricture.19 procedures and surgeries later I am on my 2nd AUS. I use Trimix for ED.
