I'm one month out of prostate surgery. I've heard the term in reference to having erections. Some say to start trying to have erections the first month or two- to prevent perminant damage and others say try when you are ready. Anyone know the correct answer?

Is there a correct answer ? You are really early days only one month out from surgery. I think about now, I started on 5ml cialis daily. Started seeing some fullness within weeks, but did not achieve anything useable for atleast 6-8 mnths out from surgery. I know we all hate people telling us to be patient, but take it on board, and keep positive. ..........Kev

Make the most of what you can as often as you can.
Getting some extra blood in the little fellow is useful even if he can't perform every time. You may well have to try some different techniques, as well as a bit of pumping or chemical assitance. Don't do anything too vigorous too soon, the bits inside you that have been stitched need to be adequately healed.

Start Penile Rehab now.
Daily (2X day) pumping therapy with either a medical grade or sex shop pump.
Ask your doctor about daily use of oral meds.
Even these small steps will help prevent penile shrinkage. If your doctor is not into penile rehab, then do it on your own.

The best information I found on the subject was provided by Dr. Mulhall. You can buy his book "Saving Your Sex Life" or maybe look at his free lectures. See link below. Good luck.

Here is where the Vacuum Pump is extremely important in your erectile recovery. Not to use rings and attempt intercourse but to just pump it up a few times a fay to keep things stretched

Nightly oral ED meds also start nocturnal erections
