My doctor-to-be told me that he does not start ANY treatment on this until six weeks have passed.
I think it is a good idea to let the body heal fully before working on this too much. Just my .02.
It would be worthwhile discussing the subject with your doctor. Viagra or similar is often prescribed soon after surgery to improve blood flow and help recovery time. Most start modest exercises fairly soon, but nothing to heavy.
A few friends had good results in general after 6 weeks, but as we know there is no specific rule for all side effects to suddenly disappear.
Thanks to all for your insight into the next stage of this journey. Please continue to discuss this topic if there are more experiences to be shared. I am always learning.
New to the Forum.
I had surgery on December 8th, 2006. After three weeks my wife and I were told to try to have sex three times a week. I was able to have an orgasm, but there was no erection.
I appreciate the discussion, because it is very frustrating to know what is "normal" at this point in recovery. I am taking one-half of a 20mg cialias daily and started using a VED (Osbon) yesterday.
I look forward to joining the discussion.

Good to hear from you! and Great News… about the urinary control. Listen to your body….
Partial Quote from above….
Don’t think this means to ride your stationary bike, bicycle, lawnmower, etc. After surgery…. That’s not what he means.
The sphincter muscle is very “important” to your urinary continence and if you damage this little muscle that is sooooo valuable… you will definitely be in trouble.
I put this here for newbies coming along…. They may read this and think oh! I can still ride my bike….. Don’t!!!!!!! At least not at this time … You must heal and then you still have to be careful he's got to last a lifetime.
Keeping you close ~ in our thoughts and prayers.

Denny. You will probably not be happy with my results but here goes. Had radical in Sept. of 1998. Since then been incontinent, but down to one pad per day unless heavy lifting etc. Try to do the exercises but somedays forget.
Have ed since surgery and have tried the two pills but they did not help. The pump is the only thing that works for me. Have not tried the injections so don't know if they would work in my case or not.
