Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

ED Reversal

05/22/2006

Question:

I have experienced a reversal of ED after 10 years (probably due to smoking for about 45 years. I have penis implants and have used Viagra. Recently, I did not take Viagra and achieved an erection that was just as strong as when I take Viagra. Can I expect this improved condition to be permanent? Note that I have not smoked for the last 10 years and I am 68 years old and in generally good health.

Answer:

I am glad you are better, however there is no way to know if this improvement is permanent.
