Prostatitis Forum & Social Network

Acute and chronic prostatitis discussion. Arnon Krongrad, MD, moderator.

I just wanted to give an update for all who are concerned about erections after LRP. I had mine with Dr Krongrad in 2010. It has been almost 4 years now since the surgery. Early on I was unable to achieve an erection that could be used for intercourse but was able to have an orgasm. Actually my orgasms are better now that before surgery. I had lost almost all sensation of orgasms because of my chronic prostatitis. Little by little my erections have gotten better since surgery and now I am able to achieve a good erection without drugs I can use for intercourse. It seems there was a noticeable difference after the 3 year mark so if you've had surgery and cant achieve a good erection just be patient. Also be careful of things that could damage your penis such as pumps because if its not ready its only going to make things worse. I am 53 years old. Hope this helps someone :)

Thanks peter for this re-assuring post, I am thinking more and more about surgery.

have you tried viagra or cialis?

Yes I did try both drugs early on but the side effects were very hard on me. Headaches and muscle aches were really bad with ED drugs. Time turned out to be the best help.

And time is against us when we have chronic prostatitis.

Very true jeffos......

That is great news. I had the surgery in October 2011 and still no erections. Pills don't do anything and contemplating injections but not sure. I do get a semi erection during sleep but could not use for intercourse. Seems to be improving little by little. 51 years old and never had erection problems before surgery. However, I do feel better now. Thanks

You are welcome John, I'm just glad I can pee again :)

Thanks for this. Dr.K did mine in 2012 and next winter I'll be at the 3 year mark. I'm a bit older than you, 57, and I'm using the pump and a thing called Viberect. The ED drugs don't work at all on me. Thanks, again.
