I have tried to find topics on ED through the search engine, but it keeps coming up with "no matches." I know better.
Could those of you with experience with ED either point me in the right direction or address the issue here?
I'm 9 months to the day beyond my Radical Prostatectomy (not robotic--don't know what to call it). Both bundles were spared. Continence was cleared up completely within 5-6 weeks, but ED is still a big (or rather small
) issue. Viagra works some but not every time. Gosh but it's expensive!
Under certain particularly erotic situations, I can achieve about 1/3 without drugs. Here's the weird part: I sometimes get spontaneous 1/2 to 2/3 erections without sexual stimulation of any kind. It often happens when I'm sitting on the toilet trying to evacuate the last bit of urine. Obviously something in this process is physically stimulating the nerves because erotic thoughts or sexual stimulation does not get the same results.
Do such spontaneous, non-sexual erections happen common to any of you, and if so, does this sound like a hopeful future of drug-free success? My urologist knows about this, and he is pleased with my progress, but he didn't have much to say except to be patient.
Not looking necessarily for reassurance; I'll just want to know how you have experienced the gradual return to full functionality--if such a state is even possible.
Thanks (I figured out how to do the signature. I hope it works this time)
