I'm about a month out from my scheduled RALP surgery.
I attended my local Us-Too chapter meeting last night and the topic of discussion was ED rehabilitation. One of the subjects that came up was starting a daily regimen of ED drugs prior to surgery as this will increase and maintain blood flow to tissue, thereby hopefully reducing healing times and improving chances of retaining / restoring erectal control post-op.
I've read a lot about the use of ED drugs here on the forum and it seems to me they certainly can't hurt. I've never used any ED drugs before so I don't have a clue if one is better than the other. However, from what I've read it seems that Viagra is more of a wham-bam single use drug whereas Cialis and Levitra are better suited for long-term daily use.
Should I consider starting a daily regimen of Cialis prior to surgery? It's difficult to get an appointment with my urologist and I'm not scheduled to see him again until June 1st. Do I just order a month or two of 5mg generic Cialis from ADC or should I consider seeing my regular family doc and getting some samples of the competing brands that way?
Any advice would be appreciated.
