57 year old Prostate Cancer Survivor

I'm new here and had my prostate removed a year ago. I'm thankfully healthy and very active. However, I have yet to receive a full erection. All my nerves are intact.

Viagra has some effect but not fully. What have you done to correct or improve

this ? Also, has anyone used the Phoenix? It's an apparatus that helps blood flow?

Thanks! Michael

What dose of viagra have you tried? And are you getting spontaneous nocturnal erections?

20mg is quite a low dose. Some guys are on 100mg. Since you are thankfully otherwise healthy perhaps increasing the dose may help.

I had TB meningitis which effected my nerves at the base of my spine and I was unable to get a full erection. After years of trying different meds and devices I found out about penile implants which has restored my sex life

Hi Mikey29466. Sorry to hear from a fellow sufferer of ED due to prostate surgery. I too had prostate surgery, now almost 2 years ago, supposedly "nerve sparing," at a supposedly top-notch hospital. Zero ability to get a natural erection since then. I have been using Trimix injections to get erections, that works well, I recommend going straight to Quadmix, because the erection from Trimix causes a fairly painful erection, and whatever is in Quadmix works just as well but much less pain. Lasts about an hour.

Ty for the suggestion. Trimex has not been working lately for me. I am meeting with my doc next week and will ask about Quadmix also about a vacuum pump. Some on here says that helps.
