Hi Guys ,
That is what my Uro suggested as well, he gave me the godie bag 2 weks after m Cathetar was removed , i used th Viagra on a once a week basis but since it showed no progress even whil masterbating i got a bit discouraged and waited till 6 months to start using the Pump and some more of the Oral therapy , howevr it too me about 10 months to start seing some improvement , i regret the fact i was not more agressive at the begining , especially with the VED an Oral medication snce i feel it would have brought me a faster recovery , i am at my 18 months mark , an experience an 80% erection naturally an at 90 to 95% with oral meds and the right woman ....however i am not using any meds on a regular basis or the VED at present , i am thinking maybe i should get back to a more agressive therapy for the next 6 months at least to improve natural erections....
Hope all of you doing well and it does require patience and time to heal ...
reading those lonks above are a grat help and encouragement....
