Faithful Reader from Rhode Island brings us his report after his first shot at a boner in 20 years:
You CAN raise the dead -- a little at a time
For those who missed part one of my story you can go to
November 11th, the day after my 79th birthday I walked into the doctors examination room a little apprehensive about what I was about to do. One, have a woman explain and guide me through the procedure and two, I was going to stick a needle in the side of my cock. The first fear went away in 30 seconds. She was professional and quickly got me over that fear. As for the needle, it was not as bad as what you feel when they draw blood from your arm. (Indeed, the actual needles are typically very short and thin. - PL)
You start off with a low dosage to start, in this case 25 units of the drug. I received the necessary instructions on how to draw the fluid into the hypodermic and the correct place to do the injection.
Trust me, it hurts more in the mind than in your cock when you push the plunger. You always start with a low dose to see the reaction. When you have your own supplies (more on that later) at home you can increase the dosage until you find the proper amount for you. It takes about 10 minutes for it to take effect. In my case I became semi erect. Not suitable for penetration yet. I will increase it to 35 units. But never the less, not bad for the first erection in 20 years !!
You're told the standard warning: "If the erection last more than 4 hours seek immediate treatment." This first one, for me, lasted about 30-45 minutes and then began to soften. The photo below was taken two hours after the injection. Still erect, the same diameter, but now about half the length it was. Not too shabby if I say so myself...and I will. Can't wait to try an increased dosage.
|(Yes, this is his!)|
Once the doctor see's that the drug works for you, they send a prescription for a supply of the drug and needles that will be sent to you at home. The drug has to be kept in the refrigerator. I'm told it has a shelf life of 6-8 months. You can take it every other day if you have a need for it. At least to start, I know damn well I have that need. No idea what it will cost me. I do know Medicare and my prescription drug coverage plan will not cover it. (Most insurance companies do not cover the cost of ED treatments.- PL) When I find out the over the counter price I will tell you.
Bottom line to this....Don't wait 20 years, like I did, before you do something about ED. There is more than one drug available that the doctor can try if the first one does not produce a result. There was a time that if you were old and couldn't get it up, there was nothing that could be done. Now there is, take advantage of it. You are never too old to enjoy the pleasures of your penis.
If anyone has any question please feel free to ask. Just send them to Pat at the website and he will send them on to me. (I will - I promise! - PL)
......To be continued......
And, with any amount of luck, the next photo he sends us will look like this:
And he'll be back to a fully stiff willy
And doing this
