I’m in great hopes the drugs will work. I’ll definately keep the Trimix in mind as the next step (actually my doctor mentioned it).
The thought of an injection doesn’t particularly bother me. I’ve had to give myself injections before…..just not in that area! Thanks again.

and found them painful and un-reliable. Also the cost was not covered by insurance and a penile implant is covered. Long term use of injections and finasteride 5mg (generic proscar) for me also cause peyronne’s disease as well as scarring. Plus there is a 1% chance of infection as well in cases where the injection sight isn’t cleaned thorughly.
My decision to to this is based on the psychological damage its caused to my spouse in my efforts to try the magic things that have some degree of failure. ED is a shared problem which in the long run will eventually destroy ones spouses joy for sex. As my wife so candidly put it.. ” Why even get into the seat if the roller coaster might not go over the first hill. ”
I appreciate the fact that you have had great success, but it seems that from many others that have responded to this group that the implant is the way to go for ” A CURE… ” not some temporary flip of the coin treatment.
For the past 5 years I have dealt with very poor erection quality. I’ve tried rings, patches and pills and today I have an appointment with a specialist.
Regardless of the outcome, I feel good about doing this — for myself and my partner.
Wish me luck and I’ll keep you posted.
yes the VA will cover TRT, the syringes, needles, anything you need to keep your levels up.
Certain VA’s urology dept will do injectables, either PGE1, or Trimix.
They will take care of your sexual , IE: ED problems.

For TRIMIX you need a urologist that prescribes injectibles. If you can get a visit to a specialist that provides injection therapy paid for, the trimix doesn’t cost all that much. I paid $101 for a 10 ml from Franck’s Pharmacy, Ocala, FL which is good for 100 erections for me. The stuff only lasts about a year in the refrigerator anyway so that is about $8.50/month. Not a prohibitive cost compared to viagra for instance.
TRT is another prescription item from a specialist even though you may get the visit paid for. This prescription is something you might be able to pay for out of your pocket.
as a korean war vet. i have medical benifits i have never used. can someone let me know if they cover testosterone replacement- cialis-tri-mix? my private insurance quit paying any part of my andro-gel last yr.

You don’t want to start down this path till you know all the facts about TRT so buy some books and read before you start something you may not want later.
I’ve been receiving TRT since 1991 and it is not a cure for ED unless you are young and having trouble developing properly. Hormone problems are rarely recognized by a GP.
