Welcome to HW.
It does seem like the longer the catheter is in, longer it takes to recover. Also some guys just take a longer time to heal, which can be months. That is a great PSA at six weeks! Next should be even better.
Are you doing the kegel exercises? that will help rebuild the strength. Also regular walking can help.
But sounds like you're on the mend, even though you had a bit of a bad time.
Hang in there and let us know what your next PSA is,
I'll be in the shop.
