Hello everyone,
i had been away for the summer and did not get the chance to get on here and read the up to date posts, however i missed the site and you guys , but wanted to catch on and report on progress.

16 months in and great improvement with ED , experiencing erections on a regular basis , mid nights and mornings , at 90% without any meds , and close to 100% with Viagra , totally usable for intercourse, and keep progressing and getting better every week.
i hope all of you doing well i have to do some serious reading to catch on....

will keep posting as more progress occurs...
