Treating ED: The Best Decision I Ever Made

Taking medicine

As a 70-year-old man, I’m no stranger to surgery. I’ve had a hip replacement, and I’ve had rotator cuff surgery. And, as is the case with most procedures, I’ve had to deal with new limitations as a result. I had to give up golf because I couldn’t do the backswing without pain. I can’t exercise as much as I used to.

But with my most recent surgery--an inflatable penile prosthesis implant to resolve my erectile dysfunction--I don’t notice any limitations. In fact, I don’t remember sex being better than it is now.

Erectile dysfunction affects many men, but since it’s rarely talked about, there are a lot of myths floating around. Can you tell fact from fiction?
