I had prostate cancer at 65…and cannot achieve erection after a prostatectomy…I had the penile implant done…my recovery had some soreness, nothing serious…I was back in the gym after 7 weeks…when you were impotent, you have a gradual withdrawal from your wife. When I kissed her, then what happens? Nothing when you have ED…you feel guilty…now you have your life back after your implant.
