    Have you tried viagra? You can get 100mg tablets and cut them into 4 and start with a quarter and see if that works. I have not tried a pump as viagra/sildenafil works for me.

    No first hand knowledge, but I thought the point of a pump was to get you there and that some type of band is used to "keep you there." Any urologist should be able to advise you.

    They come at a vast range of prices and some seem way over the top. In the UK patients used to be able to get one from the NHS.

    They come with a ring that you fit on your penis to keep the erection. Perhaps you only need a ring to keep to keep the one you get.

    I understand that you are asking about a vacuum pump. It can help to get hard but keeping the erection is a different story. It's a blood circulation problem. Use a silicon rubber band of a proper size. They are available online and cost only a few bucks. Practically undetectable for your partner and can keep your erection till the orgasm.

    There's another option if you're up to it. Trimix penile injections.

    There is an injectable drug, Alprostadil, Which I would find difficult to use, but there is also a suppository form. Since I use catheters daily, I would not have a problem using a suppository.

    There is a device advertised on Facebook called "Giddy" which is a modification of the ring idea. It is made of flexible plastic and shaped like a horseshoe, so it puts pressure on the top stopping blood flow out through the large vein on the top, but it allows blood to flow in through the large arteries on the sides and bottom. It looks like it would work, but the cost is $118.

    Google venous leakage. Have you tried doing Kegel exercises?

      Google kegel exercises and ED. You find Kegels are recommended for help with ED. Venous leakage:

      A group of 150 consecutive male patients with erectile dysfunction and proven venous leakage were randomised either to surgery or to a pelvic floor training programme. The operative procedure consisted of dissection and removal of the deep dorsal vein of the penis and its tributaries or large veins that drain into the internal or external pudendal system. The training programme was given 5 times, in weekly sessions, and the patients were supervised by trained physiotherapists. Surgery was not superior to the pelvic floor training programme either subjectively or objectively. Moreover, a significant improvement was found following the training programme; 42% were satisfied with the outcome and refused surgery. Pelvic floor exercise is a realistic alternative to surgery in patients with mild degrees of venous leakage.

      Yes, there are data of 35% of patients cured 40% improved, and 25% uneffected. I assume placebo effect + some muscle strengthening. If it happened after TURP, most likely the nerves were damaged. Injections or silicon flexible bend will work better in. my view.

    He needs to be diagnosed for leakage. Rubber bend is still is a better solution, unless he want's to have the surgery, which a permanent solution for the problem.
