thank you all. We havent done daily therapy, but often enough. at 10 days post op when he had his first erection, the doc said "thats" great but i think he was only saying what my husband wanted to hear. Yes, we are fortunate that things are starting to function normally. He switched just day before yesterday from cialis to Viagra. he said his recent erection was solid. so far no side effects but he had taken his first viagra night before he JO ed . He is not the type to keep that info from me. I believe he is over doing it and i told him he his on his own now with his "therapy" and i am not helping. I will help him get an erection but thats it, he can finish on his own because i dont want to be esponsible for the bleeding. he talked to the doc last night, he said have a couple glasses of white wine(i think hubby made that part up) lots of water, and rest. Its normal.
I am sure it is freaky to have blood come out of your penus while peeing, no matter how many times he is told its normal. He has a desk job but is president of a huge company and very active mentally and has long hours. He also played 4-5 holes of golf over the weekend. he doesnt really listen to anyone as far as not over doing it, tho the doc says do what you want, if it hurts, stop. well, the bleeding doesnt hurt so that is why he continues to do what he does, then gets a little worried about
the bleeding. He feels fine tho and we are both releived that his outcome turned out so well so far. Thanks for the support.
