This is actually not bad. I've heard of guys going to the so-called "Men's Clinics" and spending more than $1,000 on the first visit.
Age 61 as of 2017. Under "active surveillance" for small amounts of cancer in prostate as of 2016. Quit using ED pills and now using injections. Considering an implant. Surgeon advises shrinking prostate to avoid damaging bladder during RALP.

Yes, I am not really complaining, especially if I can get this all dialed in after 7 years of ED since post surgery. I state the cost because I have seen very little out there on what the total cost can run. I know it will vary depending on location and medical personnel/clinic/office. Just to let everyone know, I found my injection uro through a compounding pharmacy that referenced him. He is actually a PA that works for the clinic but I had to see the urologist first for the consultation and Q and A. ($166). The PA charged the $292 for the training visit and the starter injection. I may have jumped the gun when I went back after my first home injection. I didnt want to take a chance after the 5 hour erection. That cost me an additional $93. May could have saved money if I went straight to the PA but I don't know if that was an option. Anyway...I am taking this low and slow until I get the desired results. Hopefully this will help others who are contemplating this type of therapy.
