Dear sir,

From your description it appears that you are not having erection. I shall like to know whether you are a diabetic or not. I shall also be interested in repeating the lipid profile. In addition to lipid profile, you should gt serum testosterone levels done. You should see urologist for your condition and hopefully he shall be able to treat you with medications.

Penile implant is the last resort. It is chosen only when oral medications as well local penile injections have failed. If desired you should have the permanent inflatable penile implant in place and the surgery for it shall cost approximately twenty two thousand dollars.

All the best
