ED - Or rather total ED - The standard tabs just don't do anything. yeah
It must have had a stroke during the Op., and has forgotten what to do ??

When first diagnosed with PC, I read a medical journal report about the function of OPC's in controlling PC, (and I assume Cancer generally)..  Naturally, the Udocs say it's all rubbish, but then they can't make money supporting it, so I suppose they would not be interested... nono
I know a friend who has controlled a brain-cancer through it's use - I have seen the results !
Whilst I started an intensive "natural therapy" campaign to try and "Self-Cure", the threat of being castrated by the bride, if I didn't get cut, caused me to bow to demands.. 
Various doctor-friends told me to "get cut" and to use the OPC's to ensure that the cancer did not return.  Through my OPC's, I DID get the PSA to drop - just B4 being cut..!

I have thus been taking these OPC's  (OPCXtra) ever since. and have generally felt great (with many general health benefits since starting on them) , but as they do have an effect in thinning the blood, I was wondering if this could worsen the issues with ED.. 

Has anyone heard of any issue/link with the use of OPC's and ED?  mad

On the contrary, Peter, many of the doctors who are most knowledgeable about prostate cancer and diet & supplements do recognize the benefits that are within the patient's control to reduce the likelihood of PC or PC recurrence.  I'm speaking broadly, not of the specific which you posted.
A lot of the local jack-of-all-trade docs aren't as well trained in the details (naturally; they wouldn't be a jack-of-all-trades if they were experts in PC and diet & supplements)...so your comment depends on who you ask.  There are a lot of men who have benefitted by following the experts; but the flip side of that is that it is surprising how many men ignore the experts (some guys, in fact, vehemently oppose the experts based on...???
