12 weeks - Cialis is not my friend


Aussiex

A bit over 12 weeks and I can honestly say Cialis is not my friend. With great hope the first one was taken 3 weeks ago and I waited with bated breath for the awakening of the beast.

 

Hmmm, I feel like shit, sore legs and back, with cramps thrown in for good measure. A few glasses of wine and a splitting headache. And a nasty rash that has only just started to subside after having to give the Cialis a miss or go crazy scratching myself to pieces. Sigh, no joy from the little yellow tablet so have an appointment with the doc next week to talk about alternatives. When I double checked on the side effects of Cialis I had most of them including some serious flushing so no deal for now.

 

I try not to think of it as humiliation (hard not to), rather a step on the journey to recovery, but the return visit from previously mentioned fuck buddy was not a happy occasion. Maybe it was the misfortune of last time or my mental condition around it (probably both) but it all seemed very clinical and stilted as she tried to bring a very recalcitrant member to attention. Full marks to her for trying with great gusto but there is something about being worried you might pee all over your object of passion that night that just gnaws away at the back of your mind so not enough of a response to end up in sex......lucky I didn't get my tongue cut too ;).

 

Some experimentation along the way has shown some info from one of the nurses to be correct. She told me that an orgasm can be achieved without an erection and she is 100% right. The pleasure of stimulation is still there, just without the erection so a vibrator applied and rubbed in sensitive places did indeed result in a very pleasurable response. Just need to work on the small amount of urine that escaped as part of the process, normal from what I have heard. One thing for sure is that there won't be any morning piss horn sex in the future :wacko:.

 

How do I feel? Well a little disappointed as have always thought I could beat the odds and finish ahead of the field but have only to remind myself of a couple of things. First that I have been lucky and it's nipped in the bud. Second that time is a healer on this and 3 months is early days yet.....patience, not my strongest suit.

 

So now thinking a visit to a very understanding WL when next in Brisbane might be in order with plenty of time to ease into the action and (hopefully) relax enough to bet the monkey off my back.

 

Cheers AX

Mixing wine and Cialis or Viagra is a big no-no, as you discovered. It multiplies the headache affect.

WRT the rashes, try taking an anti-histamine, like Polaramine. But as you say, talk to your Dr.

 

My PSA has just reached 5.2 (climbing over 10 years) so I'm off to see the Urologist this week to talk about a biopsy.  Hoping it will prove benign BPH.

 

Good luck to you.

Its only 3 months Aussie, more patience needed, discuss with your doc but you should try range of ED pills.

I know it feels like humiliation but you have to look at it from a new angle,  Your focus has to change from erections and ejaculation to a more rounded experience so as to put less pressure on yourself. There are so many wonderful WLs who do understand.

Did your Doc say he had been able to do nerve sparing? if so time will help.

From your previous blog I see you did get lucky, so did I, I have been to 2 funerals of guys who didn't. tends to put things in perspective.

Good luck, keep going.

Every one is different.  Some swear by cialis and have side effects with Viagra.  Me I am the opposite.  Viagra works great but Cialis just makes me feel so sick it isnt worth it.  Havent tried Levitra yet and keen to hear from anyone who has.

Levitra is a waste of time.. 3/4 of Viagra tab gets you up for a repeat. Tried CALAIS with an older blonde WL and it threw me around too..

hmmmm

 

I've actually been thinking about writing a post about this.

 

 

Viagra/ Cialis / erectile stimulants are part of the problem and have exploited male anxieties surrounding 'ideal' firmness/ duration of hard-ons etc leading to anxiety which caused in the first place.... I have so much to say on this topic.

 

 

I will wait until I digest information and am able to write in an informative post /gathered enough research re non-pharmaceutical treatments of impotence.

 

 

Good Luck, love, light & Desire XXX

Thanks people, have seen the doc and he has given a script for Viagra (or one of it's clones) but have been madly researching natural alternatives as I just know there must be one, certainly open to suggestions.

 

I beat my cholesterol problem with some natural supplements so why not this one? Have a tip on one called Rhodiola Rosea so will be trying to find out more...we will see.

 

Again, appreciate the comments and Sir Thomas, great idea on the forum topic, lets get this out in the open and have gentlemen speak of this....great communicators on the subject of male health that we all are!

The way the price of Viagra has dropped since coming off Patent (from around $70 for 4 down to $13.99) makes the price of herbals hardly worth the effort.
