Head on Crash 18 Years Ago and Have Erectile Dysfunction Since
Injury Trauma and Erectile Dysfunction Question:
Hey there, I was in a head-on crash 18 years ago and was left ED due to trauma. I have tried ED pills, injections and have seen several unhappy women leave my life… it’s been 18 years since my near fatal accident.
I have orgasms but cannot get fully erect. I have pretty much given up unless she likes to play with toys. Is there anything that could be tried that may help?
DOCTOR ALSAYES ANSWER:
I’m very sorry to hear that. Yes, there are many options for such a case.
Usually, we start with oral medications (such as Viagra) if the natural erection doesn’t recover on its own, but these medications don’t work well for every case, thus 2nd choice we may try is injections (such as Bi-Mix and Tri-Mix).
If these 2 options didn’t provide much improvement, we consider penile implants. There are 2 main types of these implants; semirigid and inflatable. Each type works differently and has various pros and cons.
In most cases, patients report a satisfaction rate of 80%-90% with penile implants as they have erections suitable for intercourse.
However, you should know; the placement of penile implants requires surgery, and no surgery is totally free of possible complications or risks, and in this case, they may include:
• Uncontrolled bleeding after the surgery possibly leading to re-operation
• Scar tissue formation
• Erosion (tissue around the implant may break down)
• Mechanical failure (The implants consist of many parts that could malfunction, however, the 10-year device survival is between 60 and 80 percent)
I’d suggest you speak to your doctor about penile implants and which type would be more suitable for you.
I hope this answers your question.
