I'm 3 weeks PostOp today and feeling great! Went back to work (from home) 1 week after surgery and have felt very little fatigue... Walking 4 miles 3x weeks at a very brisk pace, so I am thankful so far.
My Incontinence is getting better, but it still frustrates me... but has others have said, "roll with it, time will help heal things".
ED is also something I'm just now starting to address with meds and pump..
My new frustration is an intense burning sensation towards the end of the penis.. At first I thought perhaps it's the pad I'm using... I switched pads to a smaller/lighter pad on Saturday and the burning starting showing up about
then... Is it possible the material of a pad could cause irritation and burning? I switched back during the night (last night) due to the uncomfortable burning sensation "just in case".
Is this normal to experience this burning sensation both while urinating and not urinating? Is is the nerves healing perhaps or is this something I should be concerned about
an infection of sorts?
