...hey Chris welcome. Good the hear you're doing so well. It's great to see your doing some lite lifting, I've been hitting the low-impact machines pretty regular at the gym for cardio and the IC thing, which like you I'm doing pretty well just a drop here and there......my prostate Doc told me I could do up to fifty pounds, but.....the hernia Doc says keep it at ten-twenty, so to stay on the safe side...just the cardio for now!! Ya' know that's gotta' help....and like you, I feel pretty darm lucky!
As far as the Levitra goes, the 20mg is the same as 100mg Viagra(just in case you didn't know that)....I used some Levitra from time to time pre-surgery. Worked pretty well. I've not tried it post-surg, been using ADC's blue pill(couldn't find the Levitra when I ordered the blue pill) since the day the cath was removed, that was day ten....it's working pretty well, not quite at 100% and I'm not complaining at all at only seventeen days out...I'm very pleased. Gonna' try some of ADC's Levitra soon....just cause' I want to see if there is really a difference more than anything....so OK, keep us informed how it's going and welcome again to the site....good luck and happy hunting!!
