Pux: Give your doc a call anyway. If your hospital is like City of Hope, where I was operated on, they will have triage nurses who can answer your question or hook you up personally with your surgeon. It's the least they should do -- to talk you about
the situation. There's no reason for you to wait until March 3rd.
And I'm surprised your surgeon didn't give you a prescript
ion for Viagra, along with the few samples.
Have a list of any other questions or concerns you may have ready when you call.
Best of luck,
