    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    The new man that I am dating is wonderful. He is intelligent and affectionate. He is 60, has had a kidney transplant due to a skindiving accident where he eventually lost both of his kidneys to serious infections. He just recently had a stroke and has a deficit on his left side. He has ED and diabetes. He has said that he can only have sex if he gets a shot in his penis. Is there anything else that can be given rather than a shot? This seems too drastic a solution. He starts an erection but cannot maintain one. The loss of this new relationship to me is almost overwhelming. Please help.

    I have had a kidney transplant and diabetes, but I'm sorry to say that I don't know that much about ED. I would suggest the ED exchange
    Best of luck. I hope you can both work it out.
