Hello Guys, This is Dirt again. I have a question I've never been able to get an answer on. Perhaps someone here can shed a little insight as you always do... The nerves that are spared for erection are referred to as "asleep" however what puts them to sleep? It is the trauma from peeling them away from the prostate? Very curious about this as sometimes I have good erections and other times I dont. Does this have anything to do with it? Thanks for everything you guys have done for me! I dont post much but I am on this site everyday and still bringing up zeros. Thanks - Dirt

Yes...bruised and stretched, with some bits gone here and there. Those nerves do what all nerves do when battered, they go into hiding while they regenerate and heal. Nerves heal in their own sweet time. LArginine, a pump, and one of the big 3, shots ect., all aid in the process. Sounds like you are experiencing the normal good and not so good days. Give it time. This could go on for a year or more.
