I had my RALP on 21 November 2018. Gleason 3+4 and T2a. Thankfully PSA was zero post surgery and all the pathology showed no cancer had escaped. A few post op complications with infection and heamatoma led to re-admittance to hospital for 5 days, but I am improving daily now and feeling almost human again. Good urinary control and keeping up the daily pelvic floor exercises.
I started 5mg daily Cialis around 7 days ago on the recommendation of my urologist. For the last 3 days/nights I have had uncomfortable leg and back pain, which is bearable, but horrific acid reflux/heartburn which is not and comes on around 2 in the morning and keeps me awake for several hours with pain that can only be slightly relieved by walking about.
I was diagnosed with a hiatus hernia in 1990 and currently take Omeprazole 20 mg daily in the mornings to control this. Rarely had any heartburn issues until I started on the Cialis, but guess this condition is not helping.
Having read some info I have now taken my Cialis first thing in the morning to see if this helps. I have read elsewhere that the pain and heartburn side effects can naturally subside, but would welcome any advice from fellow sufferers.
Not seen any benefits from the Cialis, but I understand this is very early days for me.
Any help and advice would be appreciated.
