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.

Best of luck. I hope you can both work it out.
