I have been having a bit of an ache whenever I have anything approaching an erection. It's not at all severe, but quite noticeable and annoying. Unaided I get only a bit of "swelling" once in awhile that doesn't necessarily correspond to stimulation (and I don't respond to ED pills), but even that can cause it. I also get it when doing a session with my pump or when I inject with bimix. Trimix, we won't even go there, it was outright pain that I don't wish to experience again. Sweating, virtually doubled over at times.....hence my decision to go with bimix.
 
I have wondered if I'm experiencing this because of the lack of noctunal erections, that I just need to be more aggressive with my rehab therapy to get past the aching. FWIW, this pre-dates the start of my current RT and HT.  Has anyone else experienced this?

I did experience this, and also noticed a slight bend, think it could be slight case of peyronie's disease, which is apparently common after RP and or older age.
I noticed the slight pain or ache would increase if I attempted to do a kegal exercise when semi erect. I am currently taking 1000mg Vitamin E, which helps prevent peyronie's disease, and I am finding it is helping with the ache and have notice the bend not as bad. Hopefully I am on the mend.

Yep, I experienced that. It seems that internally we had a few attachments that needs stretching and adjusting to the new reality of losing that gland. Mine tapered off after a year or so. If it is really painful, discuss it with your doc. Hopefully things will adjust and settle down soon.

It definitely sounds like you are getting Peyronie's Disease. There are many web sites on this issue. I have had it for about 15 months, just the curve. Never had the pain but that is real common. The link below is with the best PD web site.

hb2006, dang, I hate to admit you might be right. Guess I should check in with the urologist's office and see what they have to say about the situation.
