As some of you know, last month I had an artificial sphincter installed, one of the cuffs was put on too tight, and my urethra ruptured.  The entire artificial sphincter was then removed, and a regular penis catheter was installed to allow a couple of weeks for the rupture to heal. Yesterday the catheter was removed, and I figured I'd be back like I was, constantly leaking and using several pads a day. However, I am leaking very little. Instead, I have hourly urges to urinate, so I sit on the toilet and urinate for a only a few seconds and then I hurt down there trying to get more out.  The only other thing that comes out is both liquid and dried pieces of blood. Also, my scrotum is still swollen and very painful all day long.  Has anyone else experienced this after a catheter has been removed?  JerryV, if you are out there, did you experience any of this? I know you had to have your artificial sphincter removed too.
