Dr. Marks, thank you for your response. YOU ARE absoutely riright even the greatest experts will have problems. I have tried pills, injections and the pump to no avail. I live in a small town in Washington State and the nearest is Portland, OR. Thanks to your advise I will do my research on Urologists that their specialty is the male reproductive system with erectile dysfunction.
Even thought am 66 years old I feel I still have a few years of "physical enjoyment" left.
Thanks again for your advices and keep on helping people in need.View Thread
Without much research I had "nerve sparing prostatectomy " due to a cancerous prostate tumor about 7 years ago. No problems I was told, the surgeon is the Chief of Staff and a professor in this type of surgery in his teaching Hospital. Since surgery I have not being able to have firm erections for sex. We have tried even injections to no avail. Yes I have taken cholesterol reducing medications for years prior to surgery without problems. And I just had a triple cardiac bypass surgery BUT no problems before with erections.
Surgeon still insists that surgery was needed but he cannot explain the end result.
Any sugestions or comments? Am I right in thinking this was a failed procedure?View Thread
