ED - Viagra

Posted 28 January 2017 22:53:37(UTC)

My OH saw his consultant on Tuesday, with is PSA rising from 6.6 to 9.7 in a year she has advised him that surgery is his best option, I ask her how quickly they would act regarding problems with ED in which she replied oh he will get viagra straight away and if he does not need them he could hand them back!!!!

It might pay to have a look at the following thread.


Or just type erection into the show search drop down box.

Natural recovery from ED can take from a few weeks to never depending on the outcome of the type of surgery i.e. nerve sparing or non nerve sparing.

There are more options than just Viagra.

Also remember you do not need an erection for vaginal intercourse and the satisfaction can be out of this world for both of you.

Thanks Chris

Hi Lyn
Good advice above. Viagra can be very effective but side effects can be a bit rough. If you can get it then daily 5 mg Cialis is a great starting point to keeping his penis healthy and the blood flowing. I'm only 49 but it has taken me 18 months post op to regain useful erections and even then that is only with Cialis or injections. It's a bit of a long haul I'm afraid. Good luck

Hello Lyn.

Should you need to go the Viagra (Sildenafil) route then your husband may be one of the lucky ones, like mine.

Some of the men on here experience problems with the use but apart from a runny nose about an hour after taking it he has no other side effects and it currently works for us even at his advanced age of 76.

We have never had cialis but I know it is helpful in some circumstances
