I am 15 weeks post surgery. When I first had the catheter removed, my flaccid penis seemed much shorter (an inch or more). However, with proper healing and times passage, it has returned to near original state. My penis in flaccid state is now maybe 1/2 inch shorter, but seems fatter also. Using a milking motion when finishing urinating will get me the lost length, but it will go back down somewhat. On a regular daily view, it does seem shorter, but fuller. I have used Viagra, the pump, and now injections. The Viagra and Levetra are a total failure so far, the pump brings me close to before as far as length although not near the 'elevation' and firmnesss that I was used to, and seems a little fuller. The Caverject injection returned my length to the old days, elevation approachs what I had 20 years ago, rising to almost straight up and the girth is more than before, maybe from regular use of the pump. All in all, it seems that I lost a little visually when flaccid but get it back and maybe a little more in firmness and fullness when erect using the injections. Of course it remains to be seen what I will end up with when natural erections return, without any aids.. Hope this info helps.
