Customer Question

48yr old male, diabetic. I have never been able to achieve an erection. Various medical personnel have all stated my solution is a penile (sp?) implant. That's simply unaffordable.

Hello from JustAnswer.

What has already been tried other than a pump?

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.

I had asked for some additional information and have not heard back.

To be able to say whether there is any option other than a penile implant, it would be necessary to know what has been tried.

For example, there is an option that is not readily available at the usual neighborhood pharmacy. A compounding pharmacy can mix together three medicines that can be injected into the penis to help achieve erections. This is commonly called Trimix, although it may be labeled by the various medicines.

If you have not yet tried Trimix from a compounding pharmacy, then this may be an option.

If I can provide any further assistance, please let me know.
