Re: Shockwave therapy success story?

From what I've read on FT at best the results are very temporary and mostly a waste of time and money. Do a FT search on 'shockwave'.

Re: Questions for men with venous leaks

In my late 20s my doctor gave me a testosterone shot thinking that would jump start my lack of solid erections. It worked for a short time but I struggled. I was embarrassed to go back and I languished for years until Viagra became available. Viagra's usefulness waned after about 10 years. I tried L...

Re: FNG checking in.....

Just a guess but maybe the pharmacist wants to reduce the amount of alprostadil so there's less pain. Why your doctor is reluctant is best answered by him. I'm not sure how long you've been doing injections but I found after a number of tries the ache lessened. My pharmacist was reluctant to use atr...

Re: Rear tip extenders

Just an uneducated assumption but I believe they're for 'fine tuning' the size of the implant since the main implants are fixed sizes.

Re: Implants for growers?

Have any growers lost any length? I was absolutely a grower. Some days I would only be about 2" but erect I was ~6.5". If I was aggressive with a VED I could achieve nearly 7". Nearly a month after surgery I am at 5.5" flaccid and 6.5" erect. :D I chose a surgeon (Dr. Leroy...

Re: Hi - New member here

Welcome. I 2nd Bldoink. You don't want to skip the next alternative(injections) to oral meds IMHO. Another plus to injections is that it is sort of a troubleshooter in that if the injections fail it almost certainly points to venious leak as being the cause and gives you talking points to insurance ...

Re: Initial symptoms of venous leakage and doubts about penile implants

Might I add that I onlyconsidered an implant once I tried all the readily available, medically approved treatments. My last gasp, so to speak, was the VED and when I couldn't keep an erection even using 2 bands I knew I was broken so there was no doubt what to do.

Re: Initial symptoms of venous leakage and doubts about penile implants

But if the prosthetic fails, he is worse off than before. I think Mr. Sheep should have added 'temporarily'. When an implant fails, the median life span is 10-15 years, a procedure called revision is done. At that point the recovery is shorter. As with any surgery, though, there are risks and that ...

Re: I need help, or idk if I'll make it

#1 Book an appointment with a counselor. Irregardless of your ED problems it sounds to me like you're having problems coping with things in general. We all need guidance once in a while and sometimes it's just easier to talk to a impartial professional. Been there. #2 Either tell your Urologist to b...
