    I had hip surgery 7 days ago now, and since I've had an issue becoming fully erect. To use numbers I'm about 4-5/7-8.
    During surgery they had to basically pull the hip out of the joint, and to counter the pressure (so I didn't fly off the table when they pulled) they put a pole in between my right leg and my crotch.
    I spoke to the doctor and he said it can take more than a month, but the issue is that I'm not getting blood flow in that area. I'm also REALLY desensitized there - the only way to get erect is to really work at it for 5 or more minutes, and it takes a really long time to ejaculate.

    So I guess I'm asking if anyone knows of a way to help restore blood flow to that area (perhaps an exercise) or if anyone has been through something similar and has any thoughts.

    (I am 18 so no problem with age-related ED).

    HMMMK,
    Having been thru surery in the pelvic area (prostate cancer) I can tell you that trama in this area can take a while to heal. I my case they operated on the nerves and blood vessels that control the penis in order to remove the prostate. Getting blood flow back to the area is vital post surgery and a typical recovery program after prostate surgery is minimum 30 days of viagra 50 mg to regain a healthy penis. Since viagra can be very expensive if not covered by insurance ($150 for 10 pills) I ended up using an Indian company that was much more affordable.
    Talk to your doc to see if this will help. Once you have re-established blood flow on a regular basis you could stop with the meds.

    Hi, Hmmmk! [How do you pronounce that?!]

    Rotten luck, buddy--but you're young and strong and will come through with flying colors. I'm certainly not qualified to offer informed medical advice, but let me with a little hesitancy offer a suggestion. WITH YOUR DOCTOR'S APPROVAL, consider one of the so-called Male Enhancement supplements. Ignore all of the snake-oil claims and broad hints about umpty more inches after only a few weeks. They absolutely will not enlarge anyone. And before you ask: No, I don't know that from personal experience--merely logic and horse sense, and my growing interest in the study of ancient herbal wisdom. (Besides, given your dimensions you certainly don't need a boost!) But what they may well do, just possibly (and I think there is at least some systematic, credible evidence for it), is precisely what you're looking for: increase blood flow to the pelvic/genital areas. Even if they don't help, their natural ingredients shouldn't harm (just so you avoid yohimbe as an ingredient). But again, first consult your doctor...and hope that he's open-minded enough not to think that only chemical, prescription drugs can be effective. An Internet search will yield zillions of leads, but I'd suggest starting with theralogix.com (trustworthy, I think) and enhancementresource.com (for apparenly objective, independent evaluations of many leading formulations). These sites should give you basic information on each herb's actions and effects.

    And just to give you an incentive for rapid healing, we're eagerly looking forward to seeing many pix in your gallery. The only entry right now, your verification photo, shows very little--but the tantalizingly little that it does show whets our appetite for the whole enchilada (so to speak)!!!

    Wishing you all the best and a speedy, healthful recovery,

    KdG

    I think your being young is affecting your judgement. You're not invincible, you need to listen to the doctor. Time is the best healer. If after a month or so you still have problems, tell your doctor. You're to young to be taking ED meds.
