I have been saving this post, but I have been prompted to approach this subject. And its a delicate one.. Its just one for the guys.
ED, erectile dysfunction is a bane on any AMN sufferers life. Psychologically its destroying. You can have all the will in the world but nothing. There are various solutions, which I won;t go into, but personally I use a generic viagra. This will give you an erection, but doesn't give you any sensation. You become a glorified sex toy. I have sex with my girlfriend, but its for her and the moment, and physically for me, I could honestly take it or leave it. I have a giant vibrator I use to make myself medically ejaculate periodically for my own well being. This is even achievable without erection.
Peeing is an issue. I used to pee like 20 times a day and get up 3 to 5 times a night. Since working with my Urologist I have been put on 8mg of Toviaz a day and catheters. I now pee 4 or 5 times a day and never get up at night. Catheters are awesome and give me an awesome sensation of emptiness I hadn't experienced in years. I can manage like 10 -12 hours during the night with a catheter before bed. "walking" makes me need to pee more, not a problem with my wheelchair. I can also get to the toilet really fast with no stress.
Not one for the squeamish, but no topic is off the table.
