I also had pain after my early dry orgasms. When I read your post, I was reminded of a funny conversation I had with someone from this site. I asked him the same question because I was concerned that perhaps it was too early. I told him it hurt like heck. His response to me was funny because he said it very knowingly and it made us both crack up...he said, "I bet the pain didn't keep you from doing it again now did it?" I had to admit it didn't. Just goes to show what us guys are willing to endure for that orgasm :)
Good luck. It has been a long time since I remember experiencing any pain. I think it's all a normal part of the healing process.
42 yo. now
5/07 PSA 4.65 at routine physical
6/07 biopsy positive for cancer...Gleason 3+4...diagnosed at 41 y.o.
6/07-9/07 manic research and interviews with physicians across the country in search of the "right" decision. I went to Mass General in Boston, Loma Linda, University of Chicago and Northwestern.
9/17/07 - Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy Surgery at Northwestern Memorial in Chicago by Dr. William Catalona. Thankful the father of the PSA test was right here in Chicago.
Post op pathology was Gleason 3+4 with negative margins, no seminal vesicale involvement, no lymphatic or vascular invasion, bladder and urethral free and tumor volume was 5% of 27.3g.
9/27/07 - Catheter removal...let the games begin...
12/07 - Threw out the pads. I only had to use 1 pad per day for protection against minor drips.
I started Trimix 8 weeks after surgery with success.
I hope someday I won't need injections, but I hope more that my PSA stays at 0 forever.
