Yes. Neighbor had Prostatectomy 18 months ago and has not had an erection. Started taking Cialis 5mg daily and got an erection with a week. He says it's not the greatest, but get the job done. I had Prostatectomy 4 months ago. Been taking Levitra a few nights a week. My doctor put me on Cialis 5mg daily, but says there is no evidence to prove that this is the "magic bullet". Good luck.View Thread
An It has been just 4 months since I had my RP. A month after surgery my doctor put me on Levitra, 10mg, 3 evenings per week. I have not had what one would call an erection, but getting close. Doctor says it's not a sure thing and if you do, it won't be any better than you had before, if that. My friend had his 20 months ago, no pills and no erection. I told him what my doctor had told me so he talked to his doctor. His doc put him on 5mg of Cialis daily. Within days he was back in action. He said it's not the best erection, but it gets the job done. I met with my doctor today. He said there is no study to prove taking an inhibitor daily helps our specific situation, but he gave me a script anyway. It sounds to me like you should be taking more based on what little I know. I hope this has given you some insight. Perhaps one of the Experts would comment.View Thread
