Erectile dysfunction, increased weight, regular workouts, hydrocele on left testacle, shortness of breath while jogging, curved penis, prostate ok. Any idea?

I am a 62 yr old male. I have been experiencing ED for about the last 5 years. I work out regularly (3 times per week) My weight has gone from 205 to 235 in the last 10-12 years. I am 6 ft 2 inches tall and everyone says I look like I m in good shape. I do have a hydrocele condition on my left testacle. It is about the size of a fist. My doctor has tried viagra , has checked my testosterone , my bllod pressure and pulse rate are ok. I quit smoking in 93 although I do have some copd . I have some but it doesn t seem like any more than before, curvature of the penis. My doctor doesn t feel that the hydrocele is the problem. I do experience a bit of shortness of breath when jogging (slow jog in 1/4 mile increments). I read about artery disease, liver disease etc. but nothing seems to connect. Prostate is ok. Any ideas?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. You need to lose weight and get back to good physical health. You have a very common problem of erectile dysfunction and / or premature ejaculation and it can be easily treated with medications available during this time. The class of medication is called phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors (PDE5Inh) selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and it also helps with decreased libido which is a result of depression if you are going through one. I advise you to consult with a qualified psychiatrist who might be able to help in this regard. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
