Why can't an erection last while putting pressure on my knees post cervical spine surgeries?

Hi: I am having trouble maintaining an erection if I put pressure on my knees during sex. I have had three cervical spine surgeries for decompression from C2 through C7 inclusive. Up until six months or so ago I did not have this problem. It seamed to develop gradually over a couple of months, to where finally I could not hold an erection as long as I had any pressure on my knees. Any ideas why, or how I should persue this problem? Thanks, Wally

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You should keep your blood pressure , blood sugar level and lipid profile level under check. Avoid smoking and alcohol. You should take tab Sildenafil or Tadalafil about 30 minute before sex. I also suggest to take any multivitamin antioxidant combination once a day.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
