Last night, for the first time in almost one year, I had a nighttime erection! Wooo! Hooo! Not a very impressive one, but one without any medical, or otherwise, assistance. My lovely wife said I should have woken her up, but it really was not THAT erect for such things. However, maybe things are starting to improve. One can hope.

Good news indeed. This is how mine started working also, first the night-time E and then eventually the real deal! It took a while though, at least a couple of months.

Thanks, since I've waited a year since surgery for a little nighttime erection, I can wait a few more months for some reasonable facsimile of the real deal. Thanks for the reply Pattersson.

This was interesting. I took 1/2 generic V two nights ago, just for therapy purposes. Nothing happened, that I know of. However, last night, no pill but I got my second nighttime E. Talk about a delayed response. At least something is finally starting to happen down there. It's been a long time----almost one year!

I think the great thing here is that there must be a working nerve connection, otherwise this could not have happened. And now that you have the end goal in sight, so to speak, you get a psychological boost
