    So there is hope for me yet! On 5mg daily tadalafil and only got to use the VED twice before RT made things a little too sore to continue. Seems like I'm improving at an evolutionary pace -- maybe with the clearing of ADT meds in a few months I could get a revolutionary pace going? As my wife did remind me recently, "It's not all about your penis!"

    Tell your wife she is absolutely correct and that this is a strict policy we adopt in the Forum: when you are finished talking about your penis, it's time for another Forum Brother to talk about his penis!
