....I'm surprised the doc's didn't mention fixing that hernia oh the way out....that's the same type of hernia I had to have repaired as the doc's worked their magic on me. The hernia surgeon did the opening to ensure where and how to start the prostate removal, then after that was completed he returned to repair the hernia.....as far as the Levitra, go for it, 20mg you may be very surprised with outcome. It's workin' wonders here!
