Devlin you are WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY EARLY in recovary do not RUSH or get frustrated , actually after 6month you are doing well at 30% and maybe even ahead of the curve, i had an open surgery with nerve sparing and TODAY i got back from my 18 month check up, it took about 10 month of work to start feeling any kind of erection, and at 12 months i turned the corner and was able to hav intercourse with Viagra, today i am 80% natural and almost back to 100% with meds, desires are still something to be desired , however function is getting better and it does take 18 to 24 months to get back to normal functions (almost) nerves are delicate and once even touched and pushed , regardless of the fact they preserved, it takes a LONGGGGGGGGGGG time to heal... be patience and keep up the good work , Pumping, Meds and Masterbations will pay off at the long run ...
Good Luck !!
