injestions vs implant

Postby needhelp » Sat Jan 05, 2019 9:43 pm

I have a question. I may be faced with having to get an implant. Had a fracture. Don't think it will ever work like it did, in fact I know it never will. Now I've been trying with pills and injections. But here's my question, with injections you have to stop in the heat of the moment and go inject your self, along with the fact you have to bring a syringe with you and keep it cold or lose the strength, you can only do an injection 3x a week, and 24 hrs. apart. So, if you want to get some sex at night, your NOT going to get it again in the morning or the next night. Some of us use like to have sex in the mornings. Not going to happen. Seems like that kills the fun? Spontaneous...NOT. With an implant I think the only real challenge if your self conscious is trying to be discreet when you need to pump it up, especially if your on a new date. That's just me. I'm very felt conscious ...… But here's my point, you can get it up any time, any where, when ever you want and keep it up until she tells you to stop.
So here's my next question, why are men then so reluctant to getting an implant? If there was no pumping, and you kept your size, it would almost be perfect!!....here's a crazy question , this may be my scenario..... why am I feeling scared about getting an implant if needed... for me it just the self continuousness of having to pump ….. why am I scared?

Hey needhelp,

That's a good post. Implants are a great solution, but make sure you have exhausted all other possibilities first. If I were you I would push Trimix and pills to the limit, and then move on to the implant if you are still not satisfied. I take 20 mg of Cialis everyday and inject Trimix on nights when I want an extra boost. Never a problem with prolonged erections. No doctor is going to recommend combining pills and Trimix, of course. They are more likely to recommend implant surgery than that.

As for me, I have no problems with considering an implant -- but only after the pills and Trimix completely fail.

Trimix gave me extreme pain. I switched to bimix but it was to weak to do the job. I mixed a very small amount of tri mix with a heavy charge of bimix. That gave me a very full, completely full erection which was very enjoyable. Problem was,, the injections caused me pyronies. Then got an implant 4-18. it is not as full as anything prior. If not for the pyronies, I would have stayed with the injections. The pleasure is not near as good. Same length, skinny. Cant describe the feel sensation except not as good as before, but it is all I have.
That being said, look at my history. All nerves removed from RP. With a good surgeon you can have natural filling after implant. You may have that natural filling to supplement your implanted hard dick and have the best of two worlds. Do you have any filling with pills now? Implant and pills may make you super bionic. Pills do nothing for me. no nerves.

I tried the pills. Nothing happened. I'm just trying Trimix now. Staring me off with low dosage. So far nothing great. I did the pshot also....nothing. I had a fracture 6 months ago. Unbelievable. Basically snapped my dick. Had to have emergency surgery. Had a great sex life. Very spontaneous. That night changed my life. I've never been able to have an erection good enough for sex since. Lost my GF. As a guy that makes me feel like a looser. Worst feeling in the world. I cant satisfier her so I guess some other guy will. Anyways, they are going to increase my dosage. If that does not work my next option is an implant. I'm trying to prepare myself....keep saying if you do the injections you've got to use the bathroom to inject....what's the difference I guess if you go in and pump up?

As my handle indicates, I had over 1000 tri mix injections. If it works for you I would stay with it. I love my implant, and it certainly has it's advantages, but there are also many advantages to being able to get hard naturally. There are a lot of tricks and things to know about injections, If you get them to work for you, I would be happy to discuss the things I learned over the years that I injected by private message. For example, I used a cold pack to transport my trimix for years before learning that an hour or so in your pocket is no big deal. I used 5/16 #31 needles and had no scarring after all of those injections. Even the largest of us can make a tiny needle work if you know how.

Let me know if I can help and best to you

They have those micro fridge's cheap that you could put your prefilled syringes in beside your bed, then when you want one, just reach in and get it. Why the reluctance? Partly because some people (who have contacted me privately) are concerned about confrontation on here if the say they are looking into an implant. That is going to stop immediately. We are here to support and assist our fellow ED brothers, not question their judgement on their choice of ED remedy. If you can't answer the members question or concern without judging his choice, simply don't answer his question. Maybe you are scared for a lot of reasons... it is a permanent solution but, for me anyway, that is a benefit. I have used pills, injections and Implants.. Lovin the implant. :)

I would like to address a couple of things brought up in this post.

My doctor had no problem prescribing once a day Cialis with injections.

As someone who has also done hundreds of injections I would also like to reiterate what shooter1000 said. You can carry a loaded syringe unrefrigerated for hours in your pocket with no ill effect, if things get heated simply excuse yourself to the restroom. He is also right on about the small #31 needles.

My advise would be to stay with the injections if they are working for you.

As far as pills and injections for treatment that is something men with ED can use and if they work you are back in the game right away. Pills nor injections gave me an erection that I could use for sex. I really wanted to be able to because it was something that did not need the time and cost to have the implant.

Men can be reluctant for many reasons. This is surgery. Cost. They are having good results with pills or injections or VED. Many others I am sure.

Like Larry said this is a decision that only we make for ourselves. It is 100% about what we chose for ourselves so what ever reason we have for our choice it is the right one, be it pills, a VED, injections, an implant, or nothing.

I think it would be abnormal to not be scared. I know I was a lot. For a why well that is a shrink question and I don't know. I think that is why most of us are on this site at one time or another.

Here's my clarification: I am taking 20mg of generic Cialis ocassionally on the same day I inject Trimix. It's that type of practice that I doubt most doctors would endorse. My guess is ou are taking a much lower daily dosage (2.5 mg?) than the 20mg I am taking. Myt apologies if I am wrong. I have a friend who is combining upwards of 100mg of Viagra with Trimix. Although he says its his most effective remedy for ED, his doctor won't endorse it.

Obviously, doctors are concerned about patients overdosing themselves by combining high levels of ED pills and Trimix. But, so far so good for me.

I'm just taking 6mg of daily Cialis No effect. Took Viagra....the same . No results. Trying Trimix this week. If that does not work I may try and get another opinion from another Dr. Although I'm not sure what he would say. I know the last line is an implant.
