Hi “G”:2014.08.13. // Uncategorized

I had the radical prostatectomy Aug 3, 1998 and have been impotent ever since. I tried injections (had to stop after 2 years), Viagra and Levitra both of which did not work but left me with splitting headaches and acute indigestion, and a vacuum pump (couldn’t stand it) and so I finally decided to go with a penile implant.

I had it July 20th and I actually feel that I once again have a penis. It works fine, the discomfort has been minimal. I am still somewhat amazed by the technological aspects of it all, but I sure do enjoy the erection that results when I squeeze that little pump so well-hidden in my scrotum.

Just let me know if you’d like to know more of my experience.

I am impotent due to neuropthy associated with my diabetes2014.08.04. // Uncategorized

I talked to my Dr. and he recommended Viagra. It didn’t work even at 50mg. We then tried cialis (tadalafil) 20mg. Again, no effective results.

My question is, do these drugs (ie Cialis) work better the longer you use it? Is it possible that I haven’t given it enough time? At 55 should I just accept the fact that I am and will be impotent from now on?

If this is the case, are there any other men in the same condition?

I’m finding this very hard (so to speak) to accept. It’s down right depressing!

Also, are there any men in the Boston that are willing to becomes friends in order to talk about these things? Perhaps we could start a support site?

Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks everyone.

Yohimbe used in proper amounts is GOOD stuff2014.08.04. // Uncategorized

The catch is not to get carried away with it. It is NOT something that more is better. You must determine your own tolerance level.

Yohimbe in excess is/can be a poison. If you take too much it will make you EXTREMELY nauseated.

The key is to monitor amounts used.

However The bark or most “concentrates” are not properly prepared to maximize virility.

Check “Urban Shaman” for a guide to prepare Yohimbe bark “properly.” The problem with the home brew are the side chemicals beside the goal chemical “yohimbine.” It WILL raise your blood pressure regardless of whether or not it helps the ED.

I have used a pump off and on for about 15 years2014.08.04. // Uncategorized

It will hold an erection for as long as you leave the constriction ring (s) on. Some usit you can use multiple rings to get the desired effect. You must not leave them on for more than 30 minutes or damage could occur.

Was glad to see someone ask about pumps2014.08.02. // Uncategorized

I was thinking of buying one as well as I have had trouble all year long with Ed and after going to the Dr. had found I had a blood flow problem I have been thinking about trying the vaccum type erection aid devices. I still can get a erection but it is sometimes short lived and was wondering how well does the tension rings work then? If I could use this type of device and the rings and maintain a erection the wife is more comfortable about me using something other than the medications.

Thank you for your input2014.07.28. // Uncategorized

My Homeopathic practitioner knows my medical history very well. According to him homoepathaic medicines are diluted a few 100/1000 times. Taking Yohimbe in pure undilited form off course is a differant and may cause side effects. Naturally as I said earlier this must be taken after consultation with the Medical practitioner.

I joined this blog recently to learn about supplements, techniques, etc.2014.07.24. // Uncategorized

in hopes of improving male sexual functioning. I have enjoyed reading various posts of members much more knowledgeable than I.
In the interest of giving back and sharing of information, I would like to offer information that many in this blog would like informative.
Since I am a new member of this blog this information may have already been discussed and if so, I apologize. The “information” I am referring to is the work of Dr. William Dr. Wong discusses many subjects that are talked about on this site in his “Archived Health Articles” on his web site. He also has written several books, including his most recent, “The Care and Feeding of a Penis”. Information about this book is available by clicking on “Books” on the site.
Qualifications and biography of Dr. Wong is available by clicking on “About Us”. Anyway, I have just finished reading the book and I do recommend www.health-n-energy.com. It’s very easy reading and filled with a bounty of information too numerous to list. As Dr. Wong states near the end of the book, “There is enough information in the chapters of this short book to choke a horse and certainly enough information to have given you a much better overview of the physiology of male sexual function than 99.9% of physicians have”.
I’m really not pushing Dr. Wong or his book but offer the information only as possibly something that many here would find very enlightening and helpful. I would also appreciate opinions of fellow members who have had experience with him or have read the book mentioned above.
Thank you.

I’ve come across several impotence references that2014.07.15. // Uncategorized

staed not to use yohimbe because of dangerous side efects. The FDA has issued a warning on its consumption, but its still being sold at gnc.

There are many more medical conditions2014.06.17. // Uncategorized

that can cause dizziness than just the two you named. What does your grandfathers doctor say about his dizzy spells?
Maybe you should call his doctor and ask him your questions and let him know how distressed you are about your grandfather’s dizzy spells.
I hope you get your answers and that things work out for your grandfather.

Hi John in the hospital they gave me whats called a Baby Aspirin2014.05.25. // Uncategorized

said that is all that is needed I have to stay with it because I decided not to take Plavix so I must have a blood thinner due to stent or possible clot forming around it or on it after nine days if I have no clot seems unlikely I will ever get one

Perhaps a coated Aspirin is best to avoid stomach upset but it does not seem to bother me in that way

EECP is provided with the “hope” that2014.05.16. // Uncategorized

it will initiate collateral circulation. But as a cardiologist said in an article I read a few years ago: “…some people that make collaterals.” It’s a method that needs further study and thought on the part of cardiologists and cardiological technicians.
I’m also in a quandary about aspirin. I’m equally impressed with the arguments for and against its use. A cardiologist in Southern California (Dr. Karpman) who supervised a Dean Ornish-inspired heart program at UCLA, in which I participated, had the view that aspirin had unique effects on the body and cardiovascular system, that were not duplicated by the other natural or pharmaceutical blood thinners. I may resume the use of aspirin, but at an extremely low dose: about 40mg daily, or approx.1/8 a standard (325mg) aspirin tablet.
Let me know if you experience any significant angina, or ischemic symptoms.
best luck

Some pretty good reading and very informative2014.05.14. // Uncategorized

on blood thinners and aspirin a subject I am presently very interested in not ready to heave my daily generic azithromycin 500 mg from Canada and I don’t seem to have a problem with it I already found much the same on some this Grape Juice I drink it daily with a table spoon of Vinegar plus more during the day

I take 400 iu of Eand arginne most days as welland Fish oil my blood must be like waterlol

Thanks for a good post not sure about the EECP my thinking is it does work for the moment but blood will return to normal as soon as you stop the pressure simply laying flat on your back will provide 30% more blood to the upper body in minutes and it does help angina but like I said stand up and volume returns to normal Sooo I guess I don’t understand what the procedure does other than give a moments reprieve which fades when you get up.

I tend to carry some extra weight2014.05.02. // Uncategorized

so it is hard for me to put the pantyhose on. I am not a double jointed person and have never been flexable enough to touch my toes, so my wife helped me put them on.

If one pair doesn’t do the job, try two. I wore two during the whole treatment and it was twice as good as one. You might even put them on at home and wear them to the treatment, but don’t let anyone see them, tee hee, just a joke.

If you have a problem with water retention try drinking red hybiscus tea, it is a natural diuretic and good for you. I am an American living in Belarus and the Russian doctors often prescribe herbs over drugs, and I love it. I find they work better and with less side effects in many cases. I take tumeric and ginger everyday for a blood thinner and didn’t have any trouble till I got scared into taking aspirin and plavix, then I started bleeding internally and coughing up blood. I went off all blood thinners till I got the problem squared away as the cold weather was causing exteme pain in the chest. Now I dumped the aspirin and plavix and continue to take tumeric and ginger, 50-50 in a 00 capsule with a little habenero pepper thrown in.
Don’t take it on an empty stomach with the pepper or you will think you are having a heart attack. The good part is the pain only lasts about 10 minutes and nitro helps it as well.

You know they have been using EECP in China for over a decade and are just now really getting around to accepting it in the USA and World at large. Wish I had known this a long time ago, I would have spent a few months in China. Even now, there are some who are saying that it isn’t proven, and some insurance companies are denying claims. Of course insurance companies are notorious criminals anyway.

Here is the article, there may be others as well. You might want to look up the referenced article as well.

does anyone know of a ureologist or physician in Hawai for injectab?2014.03.25. // Uncategorized

I’m new here and having problems locating someone to presribe one of the injectables. I’m sure that would be the logical next step for me.
The pills just don’t produce a good erection. I’d like to know if someone has found something to increase sensitivity; I have a hard time reaching ejaculation.

This is for the blog readers in general2014.03.24. // Uncategorized

If you wife/lover is supportive, tell them it may help you if they stroke your ego before the stroke your tool!!! E.D. is predominately an problem in the U.S. just as hypertension, high blood pressure, and just stress in general. I am not a Doctor, but do have E.D. and in the past this usually helped.

To have an Erection is a complex series of chemical occurances that take place.
If you have poor self esteem, or stressed out, or sleep deprived, or depressed you body all but stops making Testosterone. Even if you take a shot, viagra, levitra, cialis or patch, to add testosterone to your body, it probably will not help as you also have to have stimili to pleasure centers in the brain or your tool just will not work. For a young man in his 20′s seeing a naked beauty queen is enough to get these pleasure centers firing to the proper place. For a depressed, or sleep deprived man {working two full time jobs to pay for mistakes in his past} this naked beauty queen just is not enough.
I am recently divorced from a high maintinance woman, and very depressed because of he financial mess my marriage left me in. Now I am permenately laid off too. Bills are stacking up!!!
Sometime ago my doctor prescibe Zoloft as a antidepressant. This affected my prostate very badley. Also when I saw my girlfriend {long distance relationship} she was very supportive with my E.D. She poked my Tool in her muffin with her finger, and then caressed me and said nice things to stroke my ego, usually I am going to BLOW a load from that. But the antidepresants inhibited my orgasm. No more Zoloft for me!!! I have had better days!!!

Well try the ego stroking, you do not have anything to lose. If anyone has any pearls of wisdom for me, I am all ears!!!

Stess is my demon, I have a birthmark on my forehead that only shows when I am stressed. When I was young I had to be really angry for it to be seen. Today, it looks like it is going to pop off my head!!! I have hypertension very much. Cardura helps with my ticker, but not with my pecker!!!

Spent a long time trying to get a note to you and it went south.2014.03.20. // Uncategorized

At 60 you swing into a lot of different things going on in your body. I was having trouble with erections not lasting long enough for either of us to get satisfaction. We hurried to finish. Nerve damage hits erections, taste, touch, smell, hearing, etc. Your T level drops.

Your T level is probably low and you need to buy a book, “The Testosterone Syndrome”, Dr. Eugene Shippen, $14.95 at B&N. You should know what happens with TRT and the improvement to expect. It is significant. After a few weeks I was watching girls walking ahead of me and bouncing down the stairs like never before. It was almost like a shock but no erection. Interest or libido goes way up. I have been on TRT via hormone pellets since 1991 and at 76 will not give them up.
Read the book to find out why. It is tough to find a good hormone pellet doctor.

TRT is not a cure for age related ED. The pills were not available when I started TRT and thought my ED was cured. After several weeks my T level stabilized above 800 and my ED returned. Pills help poor performing nerves essential for erections to perform better until they can’t anymore. Then it is time for TRIMIX.

Developed and pioneered by Dr. Irwin Goldstein, Boston Univ. I traveled to Boston and began trimix injection therapy. It is a syringe inserted in the side of the penis and it feels like a pin prick but the results will convince you that is not a problem. Get a sample injection by making an appointment with a uro that provides injection therapy, using trimix. Ask before the appointment.

The erection is firm enough to hang a towel on and better than when you were a teen. It lasts for more than 2 hours if you choose to inject that much.

Now at 76 the sensitivity of the penis has diminished. TRIMIX still works as good as it did in 1992. I can still masturbate but we cannot reach satisfaction with intercourse as the friction is not enough for either of us.

The wife can no longer reach satisfaction in any way and it mad at God for taking it away.

Getting old is bad but keep fighting it.

Hey man, sounds like you can get some help from this blog2013.11.17. // Uncategorized

but definitely go to a urologist to figure out what’s going on. We can help only so much. What type of medication? Even if it’s an SSRI (mental health issue) or heart meds, there may be alternatives with out the ED side-effects. Even if there’s no way around the ED side effects, maybe cialis 20mg or sildeanfil 100mg or levitra 40mg can help you. Go to your doctor to discuss these options.

sildenafilcitrate100mgJust as a side note, you mentioned premature ejaculation (PE). I have that to. It sounds iron, but up to 30% of guys with PE also have E.D. My doctor explained to me that because guys with ED have a tendancy to over stimulate themselves trying to maintain their erection, they tend to hit their point of “no return” (i.e., orgasm) quicker than guys without ED or PE. This becomes a habit over time. PE can be over come with patients and different “stop-start” techniques. There are books on it, or some good information on website (but don’t buy those pills or gels that say they cure PE)….

i’m 38 and have had ED and PE for a long time…i’ve been to many urologist and have many tests and have tried just about every treatment and have done a lot of my own independent research…. my diagnosis is penile fibrosis causing venous leakage (it’s an outflow problem, not an inflow problem). If you do a search under my name “ecgnyc” on this support forum, you can see other postings of mine.

Hope this helps…i can answer any other questions you might have…but just want to stress this GO TO A PROFESSIONAL TO DISCUSS YOUR PROBLEM (i.e., A UROLOGIST)

Hi, I use a 30 gage needle with my Trimix2013.06.11. // Uncategorized

I’ve tried the 29 gage needle, and it hurts way too much for me! I’ve also used Prostaglandin, and it caused so much pain that I didn’t even want to have sex! The Trimix doesn’t seem to do that to me.

with errection becasue of medication I know I need to take. My penis does get hard but does not hold it hardness ans smany times dosn’t. I also have issues with being able to ejaculate so soon that i dont even know its goona happen, and its over. Do i belong can others in thsi group help me?

True, I was put on Androgel2011.04.16. // Uncategorized

and then compounded T cream about 3 years ago. We then checked PSA every 4 months, to be sure. When it began to rise, too rapidly, and DRE was negative, we biopsied, and discovered early prostate cancer. PCa is not caused by T, but it fuels the fire so to speak. So, all in all, the supplementation probably facilitated an early diagnosis, and perhaps indirectly a life saver for me. PSAs still undetectable 2+ years later, after a prostatectomy.
