yet another scenario:
i was JUST STARTING to get abilities back when i began my SRT, approx 16 months after the RP. it CONTINUED to improve during the couple months of RT, but shortly after the completion of radiation, it went away again, and i'm back now (at 23 months post-op) to almost no function. am taking Cialis daily, and pump does a good job. i'm not sure exactly how this is going to work out (i know in some cases there may be continued healing of the nerves), but it looks like the radiation is going to rob me of the previous progress, and leave me with not much function. don't want to be too pessimistic, but that's what it's looking like right now
right now, am THANKFUL that at 57, i think i have knocked down the bad stuff and bought myself several years down the road. the other "icing on the cake", i'll take it,if it wants to appear.
wishing you all the best
