Why I Chose Penile Implant Surgery to Treat My Erectile Dysfunction
Living & Loving with Prostate Cancer
I have three personality traits that led me to choose penile implant surgery to treat my erectile dysfunction. #1. I hate to lose. In other words, I strongly prefer to win. After my double-nerve-sparing robotic prostatectomy left me impotent,  I did not want ED to be the cost of winning the war against my prostate cancer. #2. I’m persistent. Long after others quit, or believe it’s hopeless, I’m still there plugging away. #3. I find it difficult to take no for an answer. I consider the word “no” a starting point for negotiation. Three months after my double-nerve-sparing prostate surgery, I asked to participate in a penile rehab program. I wanted to do everything I could to restore my erectile functioning, which had not returned three months post surgery. For four long years, I fought to preserve my erectile functioning, until I flunked out of penile rehab. All  treatment options stopped working. I was told I'd be impotent the rest of my life. No one told me about implant surgery. I had to find the option on my own. As I researched the topic, I was amazed and delighted to discover implant surgery had high levels of patient and partner satisfaction rates. The findings of this study didn't make any sense.
