    I have been using Bi-Mix for 8 months about 2 times a week almost no good results. Has anyone else had this experience?

      I’ve had good luck with Bimix and Trimix. Sometimes its tricky getting the injection in properly. It took me a few times to get it right and now there is no issue. May want to talk to urologist about how to properly inject.

    Thus far I have tried Cialis and Stendra with no results. However, now nine months since my surgery, I’m noticing some additional blood flow when aroused. I’m hoping this is a sign of good things to come. Will Jones ProstateCancer.net Moderator

    I have used the pump and ring, cavajet with some success but for me painful once injected and can last for 3 1/2 hours! I have recently tried viagra in the hope it would help blood flow and reduce the amount I need to inject. Low and behold it works on its own! It shouldn’t as I had non nerve sparing surgery but it does! 👍😎🙂 3 1/2 years after surgery so never give up, keep stimulating the mind and your tackle and I hope you get a result somewhere along the way!

    Had surgery in Oct, tried Viagra and it didnt do anything. I will see my doctor in May. Been 5 months and I haven’t been able to have sex.I get hard but not enough for penetration. I recall the doctor did nevre sparring on one side. Cant remember which side it was. R u saying your erection comes back eventually with or without Viagra?

      Everyone is very different as there are so many variables. If things are going to improve then it can take time. The fact that you are getting some stiffness I would suggest is encouraging. You need to exercise the muscle to keep it healthy and maintain flow to all the blood vessels and maintain length. This is where the pump works well. Be patient but speak to your doc as there are several options to try. Some are better than others but guess it’s down to finding one that suits you. In my personal view I believe in stimulating the mind as this is what will stimulate any reaction but the body which has had some trauma. 5 months is not long, I am at 3 1/2 years. Things may never be perfect but your chances are better if you try and keep an open mind and never give up!!! Chris ProstateCancer.net moderator

      You’re correct. Mental desire I believe helps and it’s true that everyone responds differently. It is a muscle and it needs blood flow and exercise, no question. Injections have been a saving grace for me.

    Hello all. I’m not going to say much because I have a different view on prostate cancer. I do know with prostate surgery it does not time and you can’t give up. I have read many articles and they all say if you want to get your sex life back you have to stimulate the blood into the artery of the penis. Even if it take a year for it to come back. Being we are all different we all heal at different rate. If you want it back do anything you have to and try anything they have out there Good luck to all of you…
