The therapeutic use of the Sex drugs is usually for several months up to a year. But, you should probably expect to need drugs for sex from now on. You very well could end up being one of the lucky guys who don't really need ED drugs after the fist year or two. So, you could make that your goal. But realize that most men, PCa or not, will eventually need ED drugs. So don't consider it a defeat if you need them.
For me, it is entirely possible to get an erection without drugs, but it is so much easier and more like old times if I pop a viagra. Who needs the stress of worrying about
it if a drug can help?
