Cliff, 70
There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Cliff’s Story

The inability to achieve an erection after the radical prostatectomy, and the failure of the pills and external vacuum device, left me feeling very low.

It was a major low depressed mood that made me feel as though I was the only man in the world who suffered from this condition. I did not confide in my friends or relatives about this and felt totally isolated.

What I have come to find out is that you are NOT alone in this. “There is a light at the end of the tunnel” that may give you and your partner a new outlook on life and your personal relationship.

The information that I gained from speaking to my physician gave me several options I had no idea existed for the treatment of ED. After speaking to my physician at length about these options, my spouse and I decided on the penile implant and couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

Do you feel the implant all the time?

Once the swelling resolves, I could feel the implant for about one month. After the month was over, I can tell you that unless I go to use the implant, you really do not know that it is there. It becomes part of you. I have never had anytime when there was any indication of the implant that I was aware of.
