Erectile dysfunction

It’s been 18 months since my non-nerve sparing prostatectomy. The next stage is to deal with achieving an erection to sustain intercourse. My appointed specialist is o. Long term sick, so drugs are on “hold”. Meanwhile, can anyone out there recommend a vacuum pump they have confidence in? It seems a nightmare of dealers out there who give no confidence. You help would be a blessing…

  • Hey there,

    I'm sorry to hear about your struggle. It can be tough to deal with the aftermath of a prostatectomy. While I haven't personally used a vacuum pump, I've heard good things about the Vacurect system from some friends who have gone through similar experiences. Additionally, Cialis has been known to help with achieving erections, so that might be something to consider discussing with your healthcare provider as well. Hang in there, and I hope you find a solution that works for you soon!

  • Thank you, Mark. I will look into that. Kind regards, Chris
