Okay, nearing 10 months Post DaVinci, and while finally 'Pad Free', the ability to have erections is basically NIL. It was nerve sparing surgery, and I was told (and I trust as TRUE) both nerves were indeed spared. So I was put on a 1/4 pill regimen of Viagra for 3 months (every other day), and that gave small indications of near-erections (like Goldilocks--Not too hard, not too soft, but NOT JUST RIGHT either). Surgeon is a little perplexed that things haven't progressed as well, so I'm now being put on Cialis for 60 days ( 5 Mg doses). Forget the Pump as the Missus says that ruins any spontaneity, and the thought of having to Pump for Pleasure is not to my liking. The Surgeon also said that after being on Cialis for awhile, I can also take a Viagra on an 'as need' basis, along with Cialis..Does that make sense???? I have to admit, the lack of morning 'reminders' is getting me down a bit, and my libido is slowly becoming an afterthopught.View Thread
