Viagra helps reduce prostate scar tissue
"Viagra can not only help improve men's sexual performance after prostate cancer "
Viagra can not only help improve men's sexual performance after prostate cancer surgery, it can also help to reduce scar tissue, claim doctors based in the US.
After radical surgery, most men delay their treatment for erectile dysfunction, preferring to wait and see whether their erections improve by themselves.
However, scientists at the Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) say that during this time scar tissue can build up making it increasingly difficult for men to regain their potency.
"We are finding that a daily dose helps men get a faster return of natural erection and they heal faster," said Dr Mohit Khera, clinical post doctorate fellow of urology at the college.
"Patients with low testosterone levels after surgery do not respond well to Viagra, so we are adding testosterone replacement therapy in these patients as well."
Dr Khera will be joined by Dr Larry Lipshultz, professor of urology at BCM in monitoring 60 men after they undergo the removal of the prostate following cancer.
