    Major E.D.

    67 year old male had back surgery in 2012 to fuse L-4, L-5 with nerve ablation. Experienced moderate E.D. following surgery but meds seemed to help. Last year, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer and have be receiving BCG treatments following surgery to remove cancer from bladder. Now erections are impossible--nothing works. Could it be possible to have nerve damage in this area? I hesitate to have an implant with all the other medical conditions. I have a number of things working against me: blood pressure meds, asthma meds and BCG treatments and scopes every 3 months. I still have desires, but cannot. Any advice to get rid of desires and/or achieve an erection?

    Hi If you read through this link you see its your BCG that is giving you your problem now.

    I would not curb your feeling, at least keep that going, if its for your wife there are toys, and you have fingers and a tongue, all 3 are really great at giving pleasure. OK

    Following herbs helps managing erectile dysfunction efficiently:

    1. Shatavari: exhibits action similar to acetylcholine, which is involved in the sexual arousal response.
    2. Ashwagandha: best regarded as adaptogen with
    aphrodisiac properties which may be due to increased interstitial cell
    stimulating hormone and testosterone like effects as well as the induction of
    nitric oxide synthetase; having hypnotic properties which reduces stress and
    prevents premature degeneration.
    3. Safed musli: contains Asparagosides which has
    estrogen like activity and has been used for the treatment of infertility and
    sterility.

    Others: Shilajeet, L-Arginine, Gingko, Zinc, Saw palmetto. Avoid
    smoking, excessive use of alcohol and fat rich foods, keep the weight within
    normal limits, maintain the cholesterol and blood pressure at low level and
    exercise daily.

    As Shav said, Ashwagandha is a great supplement for ED as it increases testosterone naturally https://itestosterone.com/natural-testosterone-supplements/ you can also try longjack and eat lots of watermellon or take a couple grams of L Citrulline DL Malate every day and that will help a lot as it will increase nitric oxide almost immediately.

    Ginseng is another powerful herb for ED as well as Maca Root. You may also want to look into iodine supplementation as it can help clear out any halogens in your leydig cells in your testicles which can also help with testosterone production and erection strength.

        Jacksontag and Shavitondon, did you both not read he is on HBP drugs these very hard to get past even with erection drugs, bit pointless saying keep your BP down low, I love the use of herbs and would have put something up for that, but sorry they just wont work.

    Hi Have you thought of Trimex shots to give you erections, its one of the things guys have before going to an implant.

    Could be something to look at, ask your doctor.

    I am a physician for over 30 years, who works for a practice that primarily treats erectile dysfunction with what are called ICP shots. ICP shots can help over 95% of patients with erectile dysfunction regain erectile ability. The dose is tweaked to give you a 30-60 minute erection that starts about 15 minutes after you get what 99% of treated patients state is an essentially painless shot given at the base of the penis. I know that sounds like an oxymoron--how can a shot in the penis be essentially painless? I give patients these shots and always ask afterwards if it hurt and 99% say no, or just a minimal very brief mild very tolerable discomfort. This treatment came out before Viagra in the 1990's and can work for almost any type of erectile dysfunction. Boston Medical Group is located in about 8-9 cities in the U.S. (but not in Boston), and I encourage you to look into ICP treatment. Patients are taught to give themselves injections with an auto-injector device that diabetics can use to give themselves insulin. If you ask patients doing this type of treatment, they would tell you it was easy to learn to do it, and with the auto injector, you never even see the needle going in , and you just press a button and the needle gets deployed from the auto-injector just the right depth. The alternatives are in my opinion awful--a vacuum suction erection device, that no man I've met who has ever tried wants to keep using, it being described to me as painful, awkward, clumsy, unnatural, and undesirable. The last resort surgery where they put a prosthetic device in your penis I could not advise any patient to do with a clear conscience. Look into ICP treatment. The needles are tiny,
    99% of patients say there is no pain or very minimal discomfort for a fraction of a second, and I've helped numerous men regain erectile function for the first time in years, sometimes for the first time in over 20 years. It's FDA approved, time-proven, but not well known to patients, and for that matter to many physicians. Check it out.

        So just the same as Trimex then.

        Not so. A trimix is a mixture of 3 medicines, and depending on the situation may only offer one set mixture. Boston Medical Group used quad mixes, 4 of them, each with different concentration of the 4 medications, affording 400 different dosage choices. We used to have one trimix solution and no longer use it as the quadmixes are much more effective. How many doses does your doctor with the trimix have to choose from, how many different trimixes does he have, and why does he not use a quad mix instead?
