I am excited.  Finally got the doc to prescribe Viagra & insurance got it down to cost me $5 per pill...  Now that's high for a little pill, but I think it will be worth an occasional fling.
I tried it today and... it worked!  Well, not like the real, real erection, but I think it will be enough for penetration!  Can't wait for my sweet wife to return home to share the good news.  But of course will probably have to wait since one can't take more than one a day... of course unless the effects tarry on into the night.
I also noticed that when "it" got up, there was not an excessive amount of leaking, as has been normal for me.  Hummm?  I am feeling encouraged today.  OK, guys, it ain't over till it's over, so don't give up.  Keep trying.

Glad to hear things are "looking up" for you Gene -- LOL.
Viagra gave me rotten side effects (flushing, stuffed nose and heartburn from hell), so I put off taking the ED drugs for a few weeks.
I've got Levitra and Cialis samples and intend to try one or the other soon. 
Interestingly, about two or three weeks out of surgery I got about a 95 percent erection with no drugs, but it hasn't happened since.
Congratulations!  I too hope to be among the "up-and-coming" soon.  yeah

Good news that the Viagra is helping.  I have been on Viagra therapy for a few weeks now and the results have not been encouraging. My doctor prescribed 50 mg twice a week. When I tried 100mg I had severe flushing, congestion and headache (sorry dear I have a headache)

  My medicare does not cover it so I bought online. price was about $10 each.  Once  I find something that works, I probably will look for a generic from India. Most of them are about one dollar each.

I consult with my doc next week to see if he has any other miracle solutions.  Anything but the needle. I also get my first post op. psa results next week.  They took the blood today.
