Cancer: Prostate board


Hi everyone ,

I been away and now back to the board.

I hope everyone is doing well, and i wanted to share some thoughts and experiences on the ED front , we post PC treatment patiens experiencing.

I am almost 4 months post Open Surgery , and been doing really well with continence since the first month, but ED is moving slow.

I visited my Uro/ Surgen just last month; PSA is great , and he was hoping i am already functioning sexually, since he advised me that the operation went great and was clean cut as he expected , without much blood lose , and was a full Bi Laterat nerve sparing procedure.

I told him i am not yet at full functioning or full erations, and he reassured me that i will have a good and healthy sexuall functioning.

As i have said i am now 4 months post OP and i do see some slow progress and improvement, especiall after using 1/2 a dose of 100mg viarga (compare to the others like Cialis and levitra).
Sensetion and partial eration is there at this time, and about 80% eration after orgasms when masterbating (i guess it means that nerves and blood flow is there).

I wanted to post this to share and read some other experiences out there of those who have been or still is down that road, and learn about the road ahead of me and others like me...

Even though i have heard that 6 months is kind of the time frame to start and see some progress in the ED front, i would appriciate any responses and comments.

Again i hope everyone is doing well , and thanks for your helpful input.

PS: Debbie , Great rweading your post and i am happy Hubby is pogressing well !! i recall the stress you 2 been through at first !! Keep up the good work!!!!

Thanks GB! It's been a tough road emotionally for me but things are getting much better. :) My husband is doing great. And, we are better together. On the down side, my father in law is getting much worse very quickly from the PC. That was/is a big part of our stress while dealing with our own case of it. Seeing how awful that is... how painful... at late stages, would make everyone here more accepting of the effects of treatment and more grateful for their health! It is so sad that we lose sight of that part some times because of the side effects of treatment.

Glad to hear you are doing well. Sounds like your progress is good. Keep the faith! I'm not the best with patience but you are showing signs that the nerves are working so its only a matter of time. YEAH for you!

One thing I'd recommend for healing of nerves is vitamin B6 and B12. They worked for me (nerve damage from knee surgery) and are specific for nerve repair. Hubby is taking them also.

Did you hear this?

October 19, 2007 — Sudden loss of hearing has been reported in patients taking phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors, the US Food and Drug Administration warned healthcare professionals yesterday

The warning was based on 29 postmarketing cases that occurred in a strong temporal relationship to dosing with sildenafil (Viagra, Pfizer, Inc), tadalafil (Cialis, Lilly ICOS, LLC), and vardenafil (Levitra, Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corp), which were taken for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Other cases were also reported during clinical trials


It is either hard.. or hard to hear!

I heard those gloomy news as well .. i just wonder how frequent those medications were used to have such side effect , as i HEAR and Recall ( no hearing losss or memory loss yet ) on the TV commercial they say to call ur Dr if you notice lose of hearing or vision... i wonder how big the risk is ... hmmm


i should ask my Uro
anyone with any bad experiences here ??

[QUOTE=GBINAB;3273705]thanks again Debbie , i also as you can read got my B6 vitamin supplament as i was advised it helps healing herves.... does your Husband uses the pump in combination with oral medication ? (ie: viagra etc..?).

Yes sometimes you need to take things slower , eventually they will progress nicely and you get there... even the Osbon Rep said that those nerves need long time to heal but eventually they heal, and each of us on its own pace..


Hope things otherwise are going well with you and hubby ...

GB:)

Great on the B6 GB!!! B6 sure helped me. My nerves are a little frazzled at this time. I should take it again myself :)

Thanks for the encouragement on the ED. My husband did use viagra with the pump but only twice. Once when it failed.

We are taking things real slow for now... not at all. Both are a little stressed over what happened and life has been a little tough with his dad. Just not that happy normal time right now. It will get better - I hope!!

My husband is seeing a specialist his urologist scheduled for ED - that is in his urologist's practice. A specialist that helps aid the healing quicker. I guess he's good, he is booked into next year so they book him when you are having surgery. To discuss the meds, options, nerves, etc. Not sure he's interested in going but I think it's good. Can't hurt and he can ask all kinds of questions. That is all this guy does.

I'll let you know if he hears of any other "secret" cures, lol.

Thanks again Debbie ,
Obviousley you should know by now you been a great helping hand not only to me but to the whole "MEN BOARD" here especially from a woman prespective.

As far as my 2 cents , i can assure you that you should take things slow...i hear it over and over , and you both are so early in the game and so ahead of the curve , that i am certain things will heal better in time and you will be very happy with the progress.
Time heal all wounds as they say BUT especially erves takes a long time to go back to normal, and i dont think you should panic at that early stage , and just let nature takes its course since you ahve been doing so GREAT considering the time elaps!!

Keeep up the good work ....
Keep us posted ..
Thanks again , and stay strong for your Father in Law
