I also use 1000mcg MUSE at times. I am 59 like you, but with Open RP prostate surgery behind me, not diabetic. And it does have some effect for 3-4 hours as was mentioned. But I would say only usefully hard effect for me for the first hour -- after that it stays tumesced but not really usefully hard. That is still good because it is keeping fresh blood flowing all the time -- good for rehab.
Also when I first started using it a few months after surgery it could give a pretty good ache -- some people have that -- some don't. But now a year later of off and on usage there is no real ache any more. So even if you don't like it the first few times, you can revisit it later on and maybe it'll be better.
You could also try Trimix-Gel (1000mcg/300/100). Even tho it has the same level of Alprostadil it does not ache much (but sometimes can be less effective than 1000mcg MUSE). Everyone has a little different reaction to each of these -- there's no way to tell unless you try try again.
One last thing, if these do not seem to get you 100% erect you can try adding a not too tight penis ring after using one of these. It can be enough to counteract 'venous leakage' and get things pretty hard (but use it for no more than 30 mins at a time).
