To clarify my surgeon did not suggest I would be back to normal erections in that timeframe. As you say, he just suggests that the evolution back to normal erections should start in that timeframe. Today I asked his PA about
the evolving of erections and he said that by the second year after surgery that you can generally expect to have achieved all you are going to achieve back toward normal. From the standpoint of atrophy the PA said that if some type of intervention is not done in the first six months after surgery then atrophy is a concern. That is the reason that this university based medical center began a penile rehab program a year ago.
For you guys, listen to what Swimom is saying. There is so much more to the love and intimacy then the size of our penis. Good grief!!, If my wife really had an issue with the size of my penis she would have been gone a long time ago but she has been here for 30 years.
