Do "partials" give enough blood flow for healthy tissue as far as reahbilitation or do you need full?  How exactly do you measure percentage????  Just guess????
Rejoicing for natural "partials"at 7 weeks!

Smiley,

I'm no expert, but it seems like some is better than none. Like walking before you run. It shows the parts are working, even if they aren't up to full speed. And, regular workouts help improve conditioning.

How's that for a G-rated answer? smilewinkgrin

Even guys who pump often take a while to achieve full, so at seven weeks this seems like a good sign. Find creative ways to enjoy. There is a lot more healing that is going to happen.
Age at diagnosis 66, PSA 5.5
Biopsy 12/08 12 cores, 8 positive
Gleason 3+4=7
CAT scan, Bone scan 1/09 both negative.

Robotic surgery 03/03/09 Catheter Out 03/08/09
Pathology: Lymph nodes & Seminal vesicles negative
Margins positive, Capsular penetration extensive Gleason 4+3=7
6 weeks: 1 pad/day, 1 pad/night -- mostly dry at night.
10 weeks: no pad at night -- slight leakage day/1 pad.
3 mo. PSA 0.0 - now light pads
6 mo. PSA 0.00 -- 1 light pad/day

partial erections certainly help with blood flow. But, pumping will only help. At this point, just buy a cheap sex shop pump to keep tissue limber and fresh. It will prevent shrinkage. 7 weeks and anything at all is pretty good.
