I hear you brother. As Goodlife said I had a similar situation and complained about
for the first month after surgery.
I was pretty sure the doc messed up and gave me a penisectomy instead of a protatectomy. I had a second navel - and not even an "outie". It was an "innie"! I mean what the ?!! The only way I could see it was to pull on my catheter tubing.
After my divorce from Cathy the catheter my pee would flow down my scrotum and end up behind me into my wide
open undies around my ankles Quite a magic trick, no?
The only time I can use the fly in my underwear is after I use the VED. But that ability is soon gone.
By the way, I am not overweight, so that is not the issue.
Every night before bed I shower and slather up my scrotum and its environs with either the A&D white ZnO creme or the A&D Ointment with lanolin and petrolatum to stop diaper rash. I switch off every two days to keep the fungi guessing. So far its working.
If I was clever I could capitalize on this new-found ability. Maybe make a film about
John and Lorena Bobbit and call it "The Bobbit Hobbit - Now you see it , now you don't".
Good luck to you. Try the pad-in-pad trick so you can change like Al Capone voted: "early and often".
I'll have some dried fruit in that spotted dick. (English pudding of course.)
