    Sexual disfunction after Hip Replacment
    Pixcelracer posted:
    I have had ED for 13 years but did well with the prescription drugs till I had a full hip replacement 2 years ago. My penis is now bent and even with drugs cannot maintain a full erection. Anyone familiar with this thanks.

    The one sign that my husband had that he was in danger was ED when he had the 'widow maker' (a 90% block of the left main artery). The other signs were sudden and emergent. So, just sayin' if you have ED, make sure that it is not coronary artery disease then be concerned about your hip. Total hip replacement had nothing to do with the rest of his anatomy, but everyone is different.
