I’m post-prostatectomy about 4 years.

Would you mind giving more info on how you use just the clear cylinder without the liner to get an erection, please?

For example, how do you use the suction control. What rate of pumping do you use – do you use different rates at different stages?

Any detailed info would be good, as I can do OK with a vacuum device, but I think that repeated erection and deflation deflation would both stretch and oxygenate the penis. The Docs tell me that is what they want.

I can get reasonably erect with injection plus daily Cialis, but this is very expensive. And I find daily vacuum uncomfortable and boring.

Is there enough pressure reduction in the cylinder alone to get an erection without mental stimulation?
