i have had 4 back surgeries the past 7 years and until recently have had no overt side effects. one time i had ejaculation problems and they went away after my 3rd surgery. i have not had any sexual problems until my last surgery in april which was a fusion of the L3. in the past i have had L 4.5 fused with no problems. since my last fusion i have had some sexual problems which have not been extreem but problematic never the less. my dr recently gave me cialis to use and it has helped. has anyone had a partner or themselves suffered from ed problems after back surgery. it is not the meds or depression because it has only happened recently. my dr said with all of the nerves exposed, it is not surprising that this has happened, what do you think?
I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
