Like late spring in the high country where the melt happens quickly, your "T" looks like it is finally coming back to where it is supposed to be naturally. Good to be patient when dealling with the SE of PC. We also should not base our recovery expectations on how others progress as it could lead to over confidence or dissipointment. None of us are made the same.
As a positive side note to ADT, I have been taking Cialis since 2013, for the first few months every day and later, as required. The last 6 months, due to the effects of ADT, no sex=no pills . As my "T" increased since earlly summer, there was a strong interest in sexual intimacy and I thought I would try sex without the Cialis and things are great without the pills. Can't explain why but I am very happy with the situation as this means no prescription drugs.
Keep us posted.
Dave, that is interesting. I was told by my RO that I should continue to take Cialis 5 mg daily through ADT and SRT, to keep blood flowing. I did real well in that department without Cialis after surgery, until about
2 months prior to starting ADT, when things got a little less “functional”.
I’m hoping it will come back as my T rises
