I am coming up on one year since my Da Vinci surgery. I started viagra after two weeks and had absolutely no response for almost four months. After that, I very gradually began to improve. At this point, I can get a useable erection with 50-100 mgs of viagra. With lots of stimulation, I can get a 75% erection without viagra. For the past month or so, I wake up during the night with partial erections -- and very recently, I can achieve some fullness and length -- maybe 50% -- just "thinking about things." My dr says I'm right on schedule and not to give in to frustration. It's hard -- not to be frustrated, that is . . .
Puget, i am on the same time table as you with
open surgery last June, coming up on one year in 2 weeks and i can absolutely attest to the same progress i have , i can even achieve 80% erection with stimulation and no meds , but i am about
to ask my ugo to try injection therapy to help blood flow better than the VED.
your report is an encouraging one , my uro expected a faster recovery with me at the ED Dept since he told me he preserved both bundles and was extra careful peeling the prostate off th nerves, but as i read everywhere most of us are on the same time table as you are..
Keep us posted ..
