I began Viagra 25 mg nightly the night the catheter was out. The thing about
it is you take it for blood flow and rehab this early, not for sexual function. Viagra will not produce erections without stimulation, but will help with repair rehab during this critical period of healing from catheter removal to about
6 to 9 months post-op. So if you do take it early, that doesn't mean you will or can get erections, but it will aid your recovery of function. That's the way it was explained by my Urologist. I am able to get my GP and the Urologist to get me free Viagra samples, plus have ordered from alldaychemist.com to keep the cost down of these expensive pills.
