Using Cialis after stomach removal.

Patient

Q: I had my stomach removed due to stomach cancer, my BP and all tests are AOK. Is there any reason I shouldn't take Cialis

Symptoms:  Erectile dysfunction
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for using "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
Cialis is absorbed in the stomach and the resection of stomach may effect the body absorption of the drug. But there is no absolute contraindication to take the drug in the absence of stomach. You may take the pill and look for the benefits. If it gives a good response, then the absorption is proper.
Hope this helps,
Wish you a good health.
