I had a couple of erections right after surgery with the Cath still in. Then my function seemed to lessen quite a bit and now at 4 months it is coming back with out Viagra and much better with Viagra.
Almost as good as before surgery but not quite. Leakage is still and issue during sex. Getting better month by month.
