Vacuum, bimix, trimix all used with limited success for about three years and then I just gave up. It didn’t help that the cancer has returned twice since then necessitating radiation treatments and worst of all, androgen deprivation therapy - also known as chemical castration. The bad news was that I couldn’t have sex with my wife, the “good” news was that I really didn’t care because I had no testosterone and no libido. But, I know that my wife of 44 years, with whom I always had a great sex life up until 2016, did care. So I decided to finally do something about it.
Monday morning I’ll have the implant procedure with Dr Carrion in Tampa FL. I’ll admit to being a little nervous but this site has helped prepare me for what’s ahead. I am concerned that this is a lot to go through without the desire for sex and with unknown future as a stage 4 cancer patient. But the truth is none of us know our future - worst case it restores some intimacy to the marriage and brings joy to my wife.
My story is pretty close to yours. Out of the blue checkup and rushed to surgery headed towards stage 4. Prostrate removal and 3 very sad years with ED where my turtle head was 1.5 inches at best. Trimix etc was awful and not overly effective. I'm 1 year in and almost back to my 6 inch length and Girth which was my original size. I still have cancer left behind and I take orgovyx which has brought and kept my testosterone levels to almost zero. I was one to always say pre-op that my drive will always be there and this implant is the best thing I've done for myself, it feels completely natural and the only problem is......I want sex all the time. How did your surgery go? Which did you choose? I have Coloplast Titan. I'm finding that the pump is helping as well along with cycling. my recovery was very difficult but it was just a matter of doign rehab and time. GL to ya.
