    My doctor prescribed an erectile pump. Talk to your doctor it was covered by insurance. I am 8 weeks out from surgery and I am seeing a little success. Trying to be hopeful.

    If you do have a pump installed find out if you can put insurance on it. I had the surgery, which is Very painful for about two weeks afterwards. Two years later I have have leak and it doesn’t work anymore and my only choice is to have another installed, which I don’t want to do again. So I’m just stuck.😡

    Hi Immd3415. Sorry you are still having this side effect. Thought this article on ED from our resident expert “Dr. Nick” might be useful: https://prostatecancer.net/living/beyond-ed-pill/. Hope you get some answers soon. Best, Richard (ProstateCancer.net Team)

    I’m coming up on three months since my surgery. My doctor prescribed Cialis, which I started after a run around with my Medicare supplement insurer. No results so far. My next appointment with my doctor is in August. May have to go to plan B. I did make one important discovery: it’s possible to have an orgasm without having an erection.
