It's been a few months since I posted questions on this site regarding my husband's PC diagnosis and requesting help and guidance with the disease (and recommended treatments). Well, he had his surgery (Da Vinci) on 6/14/07 (diagnosed in Nov. 06) and is 8 days post-op. Had his cathetor removed yesterday and has been dry except for one "mini squirt" this morning when bending down to put his socks on. Has been taking short walks with the dog and seems to be doing incredibly well. He is anxious to see if he can get an erection though. He starts taking small doses of Viagra next week (2 times per week) to promote blood flow. My question is this...is it too early for him to try and get stimulated?? I'm thinking he should take it easy and see what happens in a couple weeks. I have been on this forum a few times since his surgery and have found this site to be so beneficial not only for the guys going through this, but for the spouses as well. You all have provided such a wealth of information, as well as encouragement and hope! Thank you....
