Hi Everyone, I've been a member of this forum since approximately the summer of 2012. During that time I've read some great posts and witnessed great information being shared between members. In addition, I've read testaments of men who have overcome their demons and helped others when they were at their lowest points. This can really be a great community of support in the battle against erectile dysfunction & male problems. Just a quick background, I can confidently say that I was one of the worst cases present on this forum. The last time I had a normal erection by myself was when I was 19 or 20. I am now 26. I suffered with erectile dysfunction all through college and then some. My erections were never strong enough for intercourse and it caused me to suffer in many areas of my life. In 2012 I thought I had found the answer when I joined this forum. i abstained for 5 months then orgasmed without Porn. There was a week after this O that I thought my erections had been fixed...the quality had gradually increased and things were looking up. Then I went into a flatline and in all honesty I was back and forth for the next 4 years. Always having weak erections which would gradually fade away. They call us the extreme cases....during this time I also frequented my Uro many times ( a good doctor who was understanding of a young mans struggles in relation to ED). I tried pills, injections, and even did 2 penile ultrasounds. None of these induced an erection. I was so confused and angry to be honest. About two months ago I decided to accept that my issue had to be greater than porn. In all honesty I think it was mixture of bad lifestyle choices, porn, anxiety, and possibly genetic factors....most of which I had overcome since finding this website in 2012. I also accepted abstaining from Orgasm wasn't the answer to my problem and that time would not heal this wound. After engaging a separate Urologist in the same practice and having several appts to rule out other causes I decided to opt for a penile implant. 4 days ago I went through the surgery and am now a bionic man . After the surgery was done my doctor came in and said I had made the right decision because I had a large amount of scare tissue inside my penis and that a natural erection would most likely not have happened again. Now I know we all have different stories and symptoms, but I wanted to put my end result out there. While the implant has its issues (For example, my length is still adjusting and I will most likely have to get a new one in 10-15 years), I am now able to move on with my life and bring some type of closure to this matter. I wish everyone the best and will answer any questions members might have. Thanks and good luck everyone!
