Here is an update at 5 months
As long as Bear does not have any carbonated drinks his frequency has gone back to almost normal without the meds.  Still has urgency issues.  At home does not wear a pad but still needs one when at work or not at home.  Interesting thing he noticed is that when sitting or driving he never has frequency or urgency issues. 
The 100 of viagra works some maybe 50 % only -- once it worked "enough".  We are going back to our local urologist for the 6 month check and will ask for samples of the other two.  BTW We are using alldaychemist, what are the names for cilalis and livitra?
He is very tired.  3 pm and he has trouble finishing the day at work. 
Learning to adjust to "the new normal"
Still learning so much on this board although my posts have dropped down.  
Have a great day and stay positive.
