Steven, I know it's not much consolation to you but, I can tell you from 15 years as a paramedic, many more AAA patients end up in the morgue than survive. Having said that, some insurance companies pat for the implant. Talk to your doctor and then check into you insurance coverage. That would be a great start :)

Steven, ditch that doctor and get a Uro that specializes in ED and methods to deal with it. My Uro at UCSF prescribed Bimix for me and told me that higher dosage doesn't make your dick harder it just makes the erection last longer as you seemed to have found out. Perhaps another drug like Trimix might be better for you.

You need a doctor that is up to speed on ED issues and not someone who deals with it occasionally. Don't give up.

First, for others who do not know, AAA is Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. Most people don't know they have one and it blows. Belly fills with blood in a couple minutes and they are dead.

I hope they did not fillet you like my father-in-law. If they did it is a wonder anything works. They cut him from the breast bone to his shoulder blade and laid him open.

At 59, insurance might give you a hard time. I would suggest the primary diagnosis is the AAA surgerycode and then the secondary be your E.D. That might simplify getting it approved. With E.D. for a primary, they may come with 1,427,064 excuses to deny you. Hugs man, that is some rough $hit.

Hey Ali;
I want to start by saying I am NOT defending the surgeons BUT, my partner and I transferred a guy with a AAA to another hospital. Upon arrival, we were directed to proceed directly to the OR. As we went in the OR there were a lot of people grabbing him, wiping his belly/chest with iodine etc.. He already had an IV so the anesthetist grabbed it and was administering sleep drugs before we even had this guy off our stretcher. The surgeon had a scalpel in his hand. My partner said to one of the nurses, give me a second and the surgeon said he doesn't have a second and he reached over and started his incision and shouted "get this guy over here NOW". I guess what I am trying to portray is that there is no time to be delicate, most AAA patients don't live to comment on their surgery. :)

That is why our doctors scan us every 3 years or so to check.. In 2013 my thoracic surgeon freaked out when he saw the CT report showing I had one on my stomach. He referred me to a vein surgeon who said radiolists can't measure and it has 1 increment to go before intervention needed. So far it is unchanged other than last month shows it is full of plaque now plus has a "flapper" on it. Some hospitals give free scans for them from time to time. I've never been to one so do not know how they do it. I used to have CT's, now I have angiograms which the hospital proudly charged $7,000 for. Got an infection in my arm from the I.V. too.
