a phase III drug trial, finasteride 5mg and during one of their examinations they found that I had an abdominal aortic aneurysm. They found it while doing a sonogram of my abdomen. I went to the Vascular Clinic of my hospital and they scheduled me for surgery. That was before they had stents they could use to repair the problem so it required major surgery which was just as big a problem as was my bypass surgery. The surgery went well and they installed a goretex graph inside the aorta to reinforce the place that was weakened. Since the surgery, I have never had any problem with it.
However, if it had not been repaired it probably would have ruptured at some point and I would have died before I could have reached the emergency room.
for any disease or overall health. However an Aneurysm in the Aorta, is life threatening on a major scale this is no time to begin a cure based on Vitamins and Minerals,and Diet which takes a great deal of time to work or help.
Of course I urge anyone not taking Vitamin and minerals at optimal levels to do so but in this case she needs a Medical Specialist.
I’ve been a bit busy and neglected to respond for a while. Sorry. Well, I went ahead and ordered BOTH the Actis band and the erecxel ring from some website (nfsno.org canadian pharmacy no rx) that happened to sell each one, saving on the shipping costs. This may just be my experience, but the Actis was pretty much a waste of money. It doesn’t really do much to help my erection, it’s bulky and uncomfortable, and too often if slides off or loosens. I do not recommend Actis band from my experiences. Erecxel, on the other hand, works better than any other ring I’ve tried out. It isn’t a miracle product that cures ed or anything, but it’s fairly easy to use and increases and maintains a bit of hardness to that guy downstairs. It took me a session or two to break it in, but has worked nicely since then. I DO recommend the Erecxel cock ring. I’m not anyway affiliated with either one of these products or companies; just giving an honest customer’s review of them.
I am now 41 and I have always been very sexual…never had a problem with erections or anything. Used to have them constantly and could orgasm a few times a day. I wound up getting married 11 years ago to a woman that had liked sex while we were going out and living together but the old saying about “when you say ‘I do’, they don’t” is too true in this case. Throughout the years she would constantly turn me down and always have some sort of weak excuse and I wound up having to literally take matters into my own hands in order to get any type of satisfaction. Whenever I discussed this with her (or tried to) I would hear how it is my problem to deal with. She doesn’t like sex as much as I do and I’m weird for wanting it once a week or more. She put it all on me and said I should just learn to deal with it. So I was supposed to accept that sex 4 or 5 times a year would be enough. At 30 years old, this was just not acceptable and still isn’t….I’m older…not dead.
As time went by, she packed on the pounds and finally (about 2 years ago) it all got to the point where I decided that I am tired of being turned down and told that it’s my problem and the weight…I’m not talking a little extra…I’m talking 350 pounds….the weight became a turn off for me on top of everything else. I finally decided I was done even trying with her and I told her so.
Anyway…a few months after that, she tried it with me and I figured I would give it a shot…but I didn’t stay hard inside her and gave up. I assumed this was because of my mindset and the fact that she didn’t excite me or turn me on so I figured no problem. I was still able to get hard most of the time by myself and take care of things that way.
Anyway, to shorten this a little, over some time my erections started not being so hard all the time. When I would masturbate, it became more frequent that I could get hard, but couldn’t maintain it. I didn’t worry too much as I figured the home situation with my wife was affecting me adversely. I was a moderator on a message board and made some “friends” online. About a year ago, I became particularly close to this one woman and we talked a lot online and on the phone. We fell for each other over a long period of time. She was literally everything I looked for in a woman. She is beautiful, extremely sexy, smart, funny…suffice it to say she was everything I had wanted since I discovered women…and on top of that, she is 10 years younger than I am.
We wound up meeting for a weekend and we got along as well as we had thought we would…it was all very perfect…almost perfect…I couldn’t get hard for her at all…nothing…we did things and I satisfied her with other means and she liked it but she felt bad that she couldn’t make me hard. She was very understanding as well and it wasn’t much of a problem for her…but it was for me. Although I enjoyed what we did and in my mind, I was turned on like crazy, I was unable to get an erection and I feel like I let her down. We still talk and we plan on being together eventually when things come around for us. I have to finish my divorce and she needs to finish some schooling she is doing. We plan to meet again in a short time also…so things are still going well for us…but not for me.
When I try to masturbate now, more often than not, no matter how turned on I am, I wind up going soft as soon as I try to take care of it. Most of the time I can finish but it takes a lot and I am usually not all that hard. I can’t get hard by just looking at something or thinking about something and I need to actually have some stimulation to get an erection but it’s been this way for years and I always figured that just comes with getting older. I went to my doctor and talked about this a little and they agreed that my situation at home was the cause…but I left out the detail that I had met someone and it didn’t work for her as this doctor knows my wife too and I didn’t need to take any chances. The doctor gave me Cialis to try and it worked fine for me…It worked great in fact. However, this is not my solution as far as I am concerned. Sure, it’s a band-aid I suppose and I can use it when I meet this woman again but I know there is more to this problem as it has really happened over the last year and a half and seems to be getting worse. The wake up call was when I couldn’t get an erection when I was faced with the sexiest woman I have ever known…THAT scared me.
I have had tests for certain things over the last year and I am not diabetic so that is not an issue. High blood pressure is not an issue either. I could stand to lose a little weight but overall, I’m not fat. I’m a little out of shape but have been for years so that is nothing new. Could anyone guide me as to what may be wrong or what I could try or maybe what my next step should be? Any help in this would be greatly appreciated and I thank you all in advance for any help you can give me. I also apologize for this being so long but I thought I should give as much detail as possible.
For those guys that are helped by VED, is your problem “INFLOW” problems?
I have venous leakage due to penile fibrosis (scar tissue) so i have an outflow problem. The VED doesn’t work…I can get hard with …the VED can get me close to 100% erect, but the minute it is taken away, i lose my erection…. With scar tissue, the penis doesn’t expand fully enough to trap the veins; the VED temporarily expands it fully , but the penis smooth muscles are not elastic and healthy, so the scar tissue just reverses any expansions the VED achieves. Does that make sense? Think of a baloon with elastic bands around it….
I think the distinction is ACHIEVING an erection (guys with INFLOW problems — heart disease, etc) and MAINTAINING an erection (guys with an OUTFLOW problem – scar tissue causing venous leakage). VED works best for guys with INFLOW problems, but is only marginally beneficially to guys with OUTFLOW problems.
Same with Injections — i know there are guys on this support blog are BIG SUPPORTS OF INJECTIONS…but they simply aren’t so effective on guys with OUTFLOW problems. Guys swear with injections they get erections lasting hours, hard as when they are teenagers. I”m SOOOOOO JEALOUS when I hear that…I’ve dont bimix, trimix, caverject, muse, VED, cockrings….these things just doesn’t help me MAINTAIN an erection because of the scar tissue.
Not to long ago Solomes2 stated that he was going to get a vacumn pump and would perhaps give a demo. I am very interested in seeing him or someone do a demo of the vacumn pump. I have never used one and I feel that others would also like to see a demo on how it works. As an ED sufferer myself I would be interested in any and all options.
Please advice me, what is the effect of taking Andriol 40mg or sustanon 250 on the testicales efficincey for producing testesterone, as i have low teststerone level which is affecting my penies eriction.
