I'm 53, had a Gleason 6, stage 2 (after final pathology), organ-confined, PSA of 2.4 at time of surgery (2.1 when diagnosed), for which I chose to undergo a laparascopic radical prostatectomy in June of 2005. I was fully continent at three months and remain so today, for which I thank the Lord, but my doctor said with the nerve-sparing procedure that "recovery of erections could take six months." Well, it's been almost eight months and even with the brand name ED prescriptions, there's nothing happening. Am I expecting too much too soon? Just wondering because I'm starting to get discouraged, and I sense that my wife is somewhat frustrated too, although she has been wonderful through this whole ordeal. Any help out there?
