Question: My husband had surgery on November 13th. He started Cialis yesterday and woke up this morning with his first morning erection. He's had 2 semi-erections prior to this, my question is, should the erections be painful. I know the urethra is still healing, but he is saying the whole penis hurts. Has anyone experienced this before. I'm fearful having erections so early can do some harm. Thanks for whatever advice you can give.
