Viagra Useful for Impotence Following Prostate Surgery

Vital Information:

  • Viagra is an effective treatment for impotency in men who have their prostate removed.
  • For men whose nerves have been spared, the drug improves the ability to have an erection by nearly 60%, but the effectiveness drops to 20% in those with no nerves spared.
  • There are other options for men who don't respond to Viagra, including injections and vacuum devices.
