My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Erectile Dysfunction Foundation, Greenwich, CT, USA
In December, 2008 at age 70, I had emergency surgery for AAA (Abdominal Aortic
Aneurysm) which left me quite weak, and took many months to recover. Eventually I got
back to being reasonably normal, except for urological problems. Testicle became infected
(likely due to catheterization) and was successfully treated with anti-biotics after a couple
weeks. Then blood in the ejaculate, and finally retrograde ejaculation. My urologist did a
cystoscopy to try to determine these causes. He could not definetely attribute these
ailments to anything except the surgery. All this added up to a more extreme erectile
dysfunction (I was taking cialis prior to the surgery).
I felt miserable. Urologist suggested that perhaps a vacuum erection device may help my
situation, and failing that, injections of trimix, and even if that failed, then penile implants
mau be the only other option if I wanted a sex life. OF COURSE I WANTED A SEX
LIFE !!! I also wanted to to talk it over with someone... someone who had traveled the
same road I was on... but who ? I didn’t know if any of my friends or relatives had E.D.
problems and I sure wasn’t going to inquire. I needed to hear from men... honest men who
could at least help me know what my future would be like.
I do not ever remember how I found Frank Talk, but probably searched Google for some
answers. Paul, the founder and administrator of Frank Talk welcomed me warmly, letting
me know I was in a friendly place. Finally I was able to talk openly, with no
embarassment and partake of discussions that really meant something to my own case.
This was group therapy but anonymous participation... all of my questions were addressed
by guys who had “been there” . Honest, straight forward discussions that were impossible
for me to have anywhere else.
Two years later, I am happy to say that my sex life has returned using Trimix injections,
and now it is me who offers suggestions, encouragement and well wishes to those who
seek the comfort of sincere, helpfull conversations with men who can understand what
E.D. is really like.
