Well I had DB call the robo doc yesterday and get an appt. for next Thurs to talk to him about he latest weird thing that happened after the surgery. Last week he was pooping when he got his one and only erection since surgery 6 weeks ago. He was thrilled and ran in to show it to me. It looked like an erection all right, but the head of the penis was dark and grayish purple. I am no doctor but this looked like a marked restriction of blood flow to the end of the penis. 5 hours after the event, the rim of the head was still dark, but by morning it was pink again in its soft state. The first call to the Dr. office, the nurse said to wait and see if it happens again. I don't even want to attempt any rehabilitation therapy with DB till we get this checked out. So we called back and got this appointment. I read Dr Walsh's book and cannot find anything on this happening as a normal thing after surgery. Any thoughts from you guys out there?
Thanks, Les and DB
