I had my prostate removed over 3 years ago

After surgery tried viagra but it didn't work

Recently tried injection the first one 25ml worked for a short period of time so both myself and my wife were excited to increase the dose 

I have since tried it a couple of times but nothing at all happened do I need to give up and accept that the first time was a flook

Any advise would be appreciated 

I Am 65 and my wife is 56 and we would love our sex life back

If the injection worked the first time but hasn't done since, it is most likely to do with technique (you are not injecting it into quite the right place) or storage - depending on the brand, you have to store at a specific temperature and not take it out of the fridge too early or too late.

Which brand of injection have you got? Did you have the first injection with a nurse watching you to make sure you did it correctly?

The injection is viridal duo 40 and no I didn’t have my first injection with a nurse I just had the leaflet to follow

Caverject and Viridal ( same medicine Alprostadil ) had little effect on me. Very hit and miss and loads of after pain. I got Invicorp 25 which was amazing and is a different medicine. Check with your doctor and can buy privately if you want. I persevered with daily 5mg Cialis and a cheap penis-ring and things are back to 100% again 5 yrs on

Then it is most likely the technique that needs some work rather than a change of prescription.

My ED nurse looked like he’d just come out of college , and as an engineer the leaflet gave me much more faith. In fact if you follow it correctly ( which isn’t difficult with diagrams ) then it’s hard to go wrong. I think Alprostadil is extremely hit and miss , not the injection technique
