I saw our new member posting to an old thread, and brought him up top so we can meet him:
This is from Ray1942, welcome aboard, friend
I had prostrate surgery 4 weeks ago and still have discomfort while urinating. Thanks to this site I am not alone and that it will go away soon I hope. Did have robotic and was home the next day and never took a pain pill other than Ibuprofen (800 mg). They work very well. Was given a large prescription so assume it was to last for several weeks. Absulutly no pain when I get up several times duing the nite. Seems to be only when active. Am very fortunate that I only use 2 pads a day and nothing at nite.Had leakage before surgery so guess I was partially trained. Go back to Doc in 2 weeks and may have to have some radiation. My lymph nodes were clean, but might of had some microscopic invasion into the blood stream. Did have nerve sparing surgery even though i suffer from slight ED. Time will tell on that but all in all life is good yeah

Ray: Welcome to Healing well. Very happy that your surgery went so easy. I bet your penile pain will go away in short order.

I think you will find that the guys here are a great help.

Hello Ray, Welcome to the place nobody wants to be...You are about 3 weeks ahead of me, I had my surgery last Friday..Pain has never been an issue with me, there simply was none..The "discomfort" around my gut is rapidly fading, even when I cough...The only pain killer I could take was Tylenol or Percocet, Tylenol does nothing and I puked the one perky I tried the first night home...Bleeding risk eliminated ibuprofen for me. But I agree they work very well for pain..

So click on "My Profile" up above and fill in a "signature" , a little history of your journey..You have to keep it short, they cut you off at 400 characters.. You can then include it or not with your posts...

This is a fine place to cruise along with others who are all in the same boat..Again, welcome!

I had that type of pain right up until my 4 week checkup. At that time he said it was normal, sure enough about 2 weeks after that it just went away. So it was about a 6 week duration for me.
