A very new area of interest is penile physical therapy. From exercises to stretching to vibrational therapy, it's all new and still being studied. This is where we can share techniques, exercises and successes.

If I clench the base I can get a 75 percent erection not strong enough for intercourse but once you let go It subsides. So I believe this will be my new norm. My therapy is pump 10 min per day the use trimix once per week. I guess this will be my new norm. Good luck to all.


Woodbine, thanks for resurrecting this thread. I just re-read my post from last fall on this topic when I first signed up on FrankTalk.

unfortunately for me, I saw little or no potency return. I am 63 now and had RP surgery in 2015 at 57.

This is a great topic.as I fear getting PC constantly...so far things are good but I have a question for you guys who I admire greatly and feel that insurance should pay for anything you want to have to achieve elections after prostate cancer. It is so unfair to the males that get this serial death disease... that is how I think of it, most men are not lucky to achieve enough normal sex function after the surgery to say they have a normal set life like before your PC diagnosis. My question for you guys is how long after surgery are you allowed to resume sex,..and do they prescribe you pills,..injections..etc..before the year or 6 month wait and see you all have spoken about. That's a long time to go without sex! Once again...my fear is talking and I appreciate any of you entertaining my question

I had my RP in 2016 I never regained an erection after that. Even with using ED medication or a pump it just felt like my penis was dead Then in 2018 ish the cancer returned and had to have 37 rounds of radio therapy. Move forward to late 2020 and one morning I woke up with the most amazing erection. My wife and I was very pleased :D Although thing have gone from strength to strength My penis is about 2 inches smaller in length. But lost no girth. And when it’s hard it’s hard if you get what I mean. Now I need to look into a a way of regaining some of the length

Rich, Any more spontaneous erections since 2020? Or was this a "one and done" event?

I can get erections now and again good ones to. But my libido is extremely low. I think that is due to the antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs I have to take.
