Comprehensive Solutions for Erectile Dysfunction After Prostatectomy

Comprehensive Solutions to Combat Erectile Dysfunction Post-Prostatectomy 

A prostatectomy, a surgical procedure involving the removal of the prostate gland, stands as a critical intervention in the fight against prostate cancer. While this life-saving surgery significantly impacts the course of the disease, it introduces a myriad of challenges for men, with one of the most prevalent being erectile dysfunction (ED).  

While this can be a stressful experience, at Oklahoma Men’s Clinic, we want you to know that there are viable solutions for managing ED effectively and returning to your normal sex life, including Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), TriMed (TriMix), pelvic floor restoration with EMSELLA™, and more. Our physicians work with you to create a comprehensive plan of medical solutions tailored specifically to your needs, to provide the best results. 

Navigating Life After Prostatectomy: Overcoming Erectile Dysfunction Challenges 

Physiologically, the prostate plays a pivotal role in male reproductive health, encompassing a complex network of nerves, blood vessels, and muscles crucial for sexual function. The removal of the prostate during a prostatectomy disrupts this intricate system, leading to a series of changes that can profoundly impact sexual health. 

Following a prostatectomy, the physiological changes contributing to ED involve a combination of factors. ED affects almost all men within the first months of a prostatectomy. However, most will experience significant improvement within a year or so, but for some men, it may take up to two years to fully recover and experience regular erections. 

Additionally, the surgery may affect blood flow to the genital area, further contributing to difficulties in achieving and maintaining an erection. The muscles surrounding the pelvic floor, including those crucial for maintaining erections, may weaken due to the surgical intervention, adding another layer to the challenge of post-prostatectomy ED. 

However, amid these challenges, there are solutions. At Oklahoma Men’s Clinic, your treatment journey begins with a comprehensive evaluation by our physicians and lab work, to get insights into the full picture of your needs and creative a comprehensive medical treatment plan of solutions that may include Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), TriMix injections, pelvic floor restoration with EMSELLA™, and more. Our solutions work synergistically together to give you the best results, and your customized plan may include a combination of modalities and solutions to provide you with lasting solutions for ED after a prostatectomy. 

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) Solutions for ED post-prostatectomy

One of the most prominent solutions for managing ED post-prostatectomy is Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). Prostatecomy, aimed at removing or controlling cancerous cells within the prostate, can sometimes result in lower testosterone levels. TRT, however, provides a promising avenue for restoring hormonal balance and restoring energy, mood, and sexual performance. 

For those who have undergone a prostatecomy, TRT is considered only after a thorough evaluation and clearance from the urologist and oncologist, typically one year after diagnosis and treatment, provided PSA values are within the expected range. The careful administration of testosterone, with close physician-led monitoring, has proven successful in enhancing erectile function for many men who have faced prostate cancer and prostatectomy. 

TriMed (TriMix) Injections Solutions for ED post-prostatectomy

For individuals facing moderate to severe ED post-prostatectomy, TriMed (TriMix) injections can be a powerful solution. TriMix is a combination of vasodilating medications expertly administered, proven to induce erections in over 90% of men with erectile dysfunction. The vasodilating properties enhance blood flow to the penis, promoting a firm and lasting erection. 

Our expertise in this modality allows us to tailor the treatment to individual needs, maximizing its effectiveness and minimizing potential side effects. TriMix stands as a testament to advancements in medical science, offering a tangible solution for those seeking to regain their sexual health after prostate surgery. Our team has successfully helped many Oklahoma men suffering from ED after a prostatecomy with TriMix. 

Pelvic Floor Restoration with EMSELLA™ 

Another innovative approach to combating ED post-prostatectomy is Pelvic Floor Restoration with EMSELLA™. Poor pelvic floor muscle stability and strength can contribute to erectile challenges. EMSELLA™ addresses this issue through a non-invasive and painless process. 

The EMSELLA™ machine employs advanced technology to stimulate and strengthen pelvic floor muscles, using high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate the muscles of the pelvic floor. Patients can achieve significant improvements by simply sitting on the machine for 30 minutes. This groundbreaking method not only aids in overcoming ED but also contributes to overall pelvic health, including a reduction in premature ejaculation, increased penile rigidity and hardness, and longer lasting results.  

EMSELLA™ offers a convenient and effective option for individuals seeking a comprehensive approach to address the root causes of their sexual health concerns.
