My doctor gave me a prescription for 100 mg. Viagra to start at 2 months after my catheter came out. That will be on Dec. 17 (3 weeks from now). The last couple of days, I have noticed a spontaneous increase in size at times, almost like some blood flowing in, but my member seems like it is made out of putty. I can shape it and bend it and it stays that way until I straighten it out. Plus, it is a little sore (uncomfortable) when this happens. My question: Should I encourage this and try to get an erection or just wait until the time my doctor said I should start Viagra. I don't want to wreck anything in there. Thanks for your input.
