It's fairly common now for Doc's to prescribe 25mg Viagra nightly, or 50 mg every other day or 3 times a week to promote blood flow and infusion of tissue during the ED rehab period. I was started the night the catheter was removed, and am continuing it. My doc follows a schedule of start Viagra at catheter removal, then a pump at 6 weeks to 2 months, then injections weekly or twice weekly , along with the pump and Viagra after 3 months. You don't say how old you are, but younger men usually are much more aggressive about
rehab of erectile disfunction to recover as much as possible as soon as possible.
Anyway, good luck with your recovery, and welcome to the group...
