Re: Re: ED Question

I have not taken any pills yet as the doctor has not issued them to me yet. He said we will talk about it on the 15th when I go back to see him. As for further testing the wife is at that time of the month and not feeling to frisky. I noticed that I was aroused to her touch and not by and visual aids.

Re: Re: Re: ED Question

Robin you are well on the way to a healthy sex life. In your postion I would insist on one of the pills. Cialis might be your best bet

Good luck


Re: Re: Re: ED Question

Robin things sound encouraging on the ED front. But given your relative young age and a nerve sparing RP, that is probably not suprising. I would tend to be guided by your urologist's advice re commencement of ED medication, if required. But if the opportunity arises (LOL), I like Larry say, go for it!!! It will no doubt, be a process of rediscovering your own body's responses all over again. Basically what work's and what does not. You already mentioned that visual cues are not what they used to be, which is not that unusual following either RP or EBRT. So good luck on your voyage of discovery but don't be suprised if there are a few hiccups along the way.

Re: Re: Re: Re: ED Question

At this point I will take wha I can get. You are right about rediscovering how your body works. The first time I had an orgasm I was so scared I was going to urinate into my wives mouth.

My doctor is an expert so I will let him drive te pill issues. I am just happy to be alive and have some function back.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: ED Question

Sound's like a pretty good response to me Robin.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: ED Question

I spoke with my insurance today about the cost of ed drugs. They state that 8 viagra will cost me $49 and cialis will run me $56 for 8. Hopefully my doctor has some samples lying around the office!

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: ED Question

Here in Israel doctors are given free samples of all three types of pills. For the last five years I have managed scrounge enough pills so that I did not have to buy any
