I had my Da Vinci surgery on 5/17. The nurse who removed my catheter (day 6) told me I could start to stimualte myself as soon as I wanted. My Doc had me start Levitra at week two and encourgaged me to stimulate (alone or with my partner) the equipment as much as we wanted. My understanding is that stimulating blood flow to that area is very benificial to recovery. Keep in mind that Da Vinci is major surgery and there is allot of healing going on. I was VERY gentle with myself in the begining.
