First, welcome jahfreak.
Now, your issue.
Ah yes, the mystery of the disappearing penis. Yet another in the saga of things they don't tell you about before they snip. At least they didn't tell me. Pity, I'd have liked to have said goodbye.
Here's the way I understand it. The bladder is up in there, pretty much fixed into place by whatever glue God uses. The prostate is below that, and then the penis. When the prostate comes out the surgeon has to attach the penis to something, at least if you're going to pee that is, and so naturally it gets attached to the bottom of the bladder. Now, the bladder won't come down, but the penis will retreat up, so guess what gets moved to make the attachment fit? Right.
I for one am glad my bladder isn't above my stomach.
jahfreak, your penis is the same size it always was, it's just filling in between the engine and the caboose so to speak.
