Post Prostate Operation

I'm trying to get some helpful info from other men that have gone through the operation.
1. It has been a year since my operation. There is still no penis erection. How long does this last? I have tried the pills (viagra etc) and they don't work for me.
2. I am looking into penis implants. Who out there has gone this route and what are your opinions. How long did you wait to have it done? What implant did you have? What was the average cost? Are you satisfied with the results?
Any help..thoughts about this would be appriciated. Thanks everyone in advance.

Re: Post Prostate Operation

Before you consider implants, you might ask your urologist about injections. Like you, I had a RP last March and have not yet been able to resume erections. My urologist gave me injections beginning in June. They produced a good erection, however, I had extreme pain with them. Many of the guys on this board and ***** prostate cancer threads have used them successfully, without the pain. So, if I were you, I'd get the urologist to have you try Caverject or Edex and see if that works for you. You might also consider getting a VED and see if pumping will work for you. I have one, but unfortunately I can't get the constriction rings to hold the blood in, so I lose the erections quickly. I do use the VED every night to keep blood flow to the cavernosa.
Good luck in whatever you do.
