Discussions that mention cialis

I was given samples of Cialis 8 weeks after my RPR. It worked for me on the very first try, although not as quickly as we wanted. I took the pill on Saturday afternoon and had success on Sunday evening. As a side effect, I had a low grade headache for two days, but it was worth it! I have since been having natural partial erections that are almost useable. :D

Liane-I am one of those lucky ones who did not need drugs. I started to have erections 28 days after surgery. My erectile ability is pretty much back to normal after 2+ years. Stimulation & constantly "working at it" seemed to help a lot. I tried Viagra after I gained erections but saw no real advantages & gained a stuffy nose from it. I have samples of Cialis I asked for from my urologist but have not needed to use them. My reason for trying the meds after gaining erections was to see if they offered me any better results.

Hi again, Liane. Has your husband had any sign that natural erections are returning yet?

I discussed the daily meds after surgery option with my uro, and he did give me a prescription for Viagra about 8 weeks after my RRP. The idea is daily use helps the nerves recover faster. But the clinical studies are few and his take on it was that most people couldn't afford daily treatment. (My drug plan, like a lot of them, won't cover these meds.) However I do occasionally take Viagra, Levritra or Cialis and, 9 months after surgery, there is some success. I find Cialis seems to give me the fewest side effects. On my last try it produced a semi-hard and, briefly, almost-hard erection, after a lot of stimulation. This is a great improvement since I first took the meds after surgery, when there was little or no effect. Still not enough for successful penetration. But this level of success means the nerves do still have some life in them so that gives me hope.

Far more successful for me is injection therapy with tri-mix. I know some are uncomfortable with this, and I was very much so at first. But after attending an excellent presentation by an expert in the field, and discussion with my uro, I was convinced it was really the best first option. It's not perfect. The injection itself is still stressful and inconvenient, and I still have occasional failures. But with practice it's gotten better and the quality of erections is frequently absolutely superb. Certainly my partner doesn't complain about hours of rock hard erection, even after I've had a couple of orgasms! I believe that anyone who is depressed or stressed over erectile problems should seek out a competent and caring ED specialist and give injection therapy a chance. From my own experience I can say that a few successful treaments go a very, very long way to overcoming the injection phobia.
