Good Mornng Guys,
My wife had told me about these kegels but I waited to confirm with the Doctor. And yes this is right. So new I had called his assistant earlier and he did not know of this new method.
I did the regular kegels 150-200 during the day 10/10 and then shut off the water and did the new ones last night. No difference noted. I was up 2-3 times to let some water out and still had a very soaked night diaper . I am one to follow my Doc and do exactly what he says. So I will keep you informed as to how it goes.
Now another point. My Doc's ED instructions are now, after catheter removed, 50 mg Viagra every other day in morning and to go for it manually at first and if possable with partner. He says the most important thing is to be able to reach orgasm. Well this morning was my first day. Very scary, was afraid of hurthing something but Doc said just dont be acrobatic . I would try this but if I hurt I would stop. On this matter I believe I got very lucky with things. I developed a very workable organ and without too much effort yes I did. It was very different but intense and I had to go lay down. I quit smoking 2 years ago but if I had one I would have smoked it. I thought ED issues would take a lot longer than 9 days out of surgery.
Doc said the nerves pealed off very nice and went back easy as well. I am not happy about the positive margin but regardingg ED this guy must be an artist. I new going in he was very aggresive with continence and ED thats why I picked him.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, here in Chicago this is our first nice spring weekend. My son is home from college and I will take advantage of his young muscles.
