I've posted a number of times about the urinary incontinence that I was "gifted" by the doctor who did the Greenlight laser performance about two years ago. The leaking, 24x7 put an end to my love life, but I was finally able to get a resolution of the strictures in the area of the external sphincter long enough to have an AUS implant. That has worked out nicely, and I'm essentially dry again, except when I have a hard cough. I had hoped and thought that this would allow me and my wife to resume our sex life---I'd never had a moment's difficulty with than before the Greenlight procedure. Unfortunately, we tried recently, and I can't achieve a full erection, so we were both left frustrated. (At least I know I was!)
My only regular medication is a low dose (20 mg of Lisinopril) for BP control. I'll be 79 next month, but am pretty physically active, although my implant doesn't allow me to ride my bike anymore. So my question is, what are the options outside of surgery? (The doctor who did my AUS is also an expert in penile implants. After 6 surgeries within two years, I'm not quite ready to go that route.) Have any of you had experience with Viagra or Cialis? Do they really work? I've read that headaches can be a side effect. Do they last long? Thanks for any advice you have. Glenn
