I agree with all the above Dan. I waited too long on using the Viagra etc. and had fair results without them, but very significant shrinkage over the past year. I'm currently down to only about
8 1/2 in length when I have about
a 75-percent erection.
Ok, 7 1/2.
OK, would you believe 6?
OK, so I'm talking centimeters...
Seriously, I've seen a bit of shrinkage, but not enough to worry me. My erections are at about 75 to 80 percent without ED drugs and I'm about 15 months post-surgery. I initially had a bad reaction with Viagra and decided to forgo the ED drugs, which may have been a mistake. But I'll soon be doing Levitra and/or Cialis and we'll see how that goes.
I say if you can tolerate the ED drugs, go for it. The more fresh, oxygenated blood you get flowing through your penis, the better.
And remember -- Patience is the key word.
