My uro started me on 40mg generic sildenafil daily about
a month after my surgery. This is mostly to help with blood flow. Unless you are one of the very, very lucky few you won’t be able to achieve anything close to a normal erection even with a full 100 mg dose for at least 6 months, 12-18 months more likely. Hopefully, your URO will set those expectations as well.
2 months after my surgery, I started trimix injections which are working very well
. More about
that if you’re interested.
