It's been awhile since my last post but have been lurking regularly.
I just had my 7 mth PSA visit and it was non-detectable!
My incontence verys from 2 soaked pads on a good to 4 or 5 on a bad day.
But I did have an issue to discuss with my DR, maybe you all can give me your opinion too....
When I take My Cialis I have better control (1 - 2 pads) with my incontence than when I don't, and that control can last for 2 to 3 days.
I mentioned this to my DR and he said that the cialis should not make a difference for this. So i tried an experiment and stop the cialis for two weeks and i went thru 4 -5 pads a day. I starded the cialis again and I dropped to 1 -2 (mostly 2 pads) aday. I'm not stopping again! the cialis is helping with the ED as I can gain a 3/4 erection within one hour after taking it. I mentioned this again to my DR and he was puzzled, he said he would speak to a PPI specialist at his next seminar.
Also he suggest to start thinking about the new Advanced Sling Procedeure if my incontence does not improve after one year. I just read about this new procedure and it does sound encourging.
For those who have not heard of this procedure i am inclosing the link for it.
Good luck to all. And all responses are welcome.
Bless You All,
