Discussions that mention cialis

Cancer: Prostate board


I had robotic surgery Jan 6th. My PSA was 4.9 and my gleason number 7. The left nerve bundle was spared and my recovery has gone smoothly. I had my catheter in for a week and had very little incontinence after. Just light occasional leaking. Erections are still a memory, but I have started taking viagra 25 mgs a day. I tried Cialis once and had 3 days of muscle cramps. Also had on injection to stimulate and erection with little effect except a lot of discomfort that lasted about four hours.

I am having a problem with pain where my prostate was. The area right behind my scotum. This occurs when I have been on my feet for any length of time or after exercising on a treadmill or afteer long walks. It gets to the point that I have to sit or lie down. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm seeing my surgeon tomorrow and will see what he has to say.

Thanks

Paul

Hey Paul:

I seem to recall reading about that, and from what I remember it is normal. I had my RRP done 12/17/07 and had that pain as well, but not for very long or very annoying. In my case the incontinence however was very annoying, and thankfully it has improved immensely. I also had the pain from Cialis primarily in the thighs, although it has diminished over time. And I have had no luck with it or Viagra so far other than enriching my local pharmacy. If nothing else, this whole thing is an incredible lesson in patience, patience and more patience. How did your post-surgical pathology come out?
Thanks for the info CapBob,

My pathology came back clean. I'm waiting for the results of my first psa test today.

I also thought I had read something about the pain, but never was able to find it again. Its been a problem for about three weeks. Looking forward to having it in the past. I know what you mean about enriching the local pharmacy. My pharmacy charges $104 for the viagra and $293 for Cavesect. How many mgs of Viagra are you taking. Are you take both Cialis and Viagra. I have a perscription for Cialis, but haven't filled it after the side effects, I will give it another try after my bank account gets replenished.

Cheers.
