Erections were fantastic, but more often than not lasted too long , like you , often 3 to 4 hours before abating.
The solution for me , my urologist advised this, was to do jumping jacks and/or run up and down the stairs a few times , to drain the blood away from the penis.
This worked for me.
3 hours plus and its a definite source of discomfort.
I worked out hard last night doing lunges, squats, and jumping jacks for half an hour straight outside in the cold until I was breathing hard and my heart was pounding. This slightly helped making me go from a full erection to a semi erection that faded over the next half an hour.
I think I cut it pretty close and was about to bite the bullet and go to the ER. It was still a little swollen but bendable after 4 hours and was back to normal flaccid state at 4.5. I hope it didn't do any damage, but even if I had gone in to the ER at 4 hours it would have been flaccid before the doctor saw me.
I see you just got your implant, how do you like it? Do you think the injections did any damage, or did they just stop working for you as your VL progressed?
Im just 12 days post op , 'liking it' doesnt really come into it yet my friend, its more about healing up and resting up for the next 4 weeks and back to the surgeon to inflate the impant at 6 weeks. The surgery is no joke and takes you off yohr feet for a while, but im keeping my fingers crossed all goes to p,an and I got a good result.
Yes , my venous leak was severe since my mid twenties, i was very disappointed the success with injections lasted less than a year.
I got great , full erections with injections and my partner was none the wiser, though I remember doing jumping jacks in the bathroom thinking if anybody saw me
My urologist did say I had some scarring after one examination , I used to inject both sides of the penis and was having a lot of sex at the time.
The scarring I had did not preclude an implant.
After the injections stopped working I had vein ligation surgery , my dorsal vein was removed and many other drainage veins. After that injecting was far far too painful, so I went for an implant.
My advice would be to inject for as long as you can get away with, get regular check ups for scarring if you injecting for years, and also Get a doppler ultarsound to confirm if you have a VL, and you ll also know how severe or mild it is.
37 years old. Ed from VL all my life. Natural erections impossible from 25 years onwards. Max strength pills stopped working , vein ligation didnt work. Injections worked great for 6 months before they stopped working. Implanted 4/4/18.
