 Hi everyone!
 
My darling husband tried to achieve an erection last night as an experiment (he says). I reminded him that he still had a catheter in (as if he forgot), and that his discharge papers clearly stated NO SEXUAL ACTIVITY. To make a long story short, he actually had some small results. BUT..... during this "experiment", I noticed a weird localized swelling on the underside of his penis. Almost like a fluid filled sack (about the size of a quarter in diameter. He says it didn't hurt. I will definitely be telling the doctor on him on Tuesday, but until then, does anyone have any clues as to what this might be?

Sounds like a little normal post-op edema

Thank you swimom, I figured you'd be able to help. My main concern was that something was leaking some where.

Kate, aren't these guys funny how they have to see how things are working? I would think having an erection with a catheter would hurt like crazy. Jeff was able to have a climax about 10 days after surgery (catheter was gone), then the next one hurt a lot so we didn't do anything for about a week. now we're working on an erection, which hasn't happened yet, but Jeff said his climaxes are great ... even better than before - more intense. he has a 4 week post-op appt with his doctor tomorrow. He would rather not take the Cialis and is looking for alternatives. anyway, I hope the swelling is nothing and keep up the good recovery. kat

Thanks M.Kat,
I guess they're pretty sensitive about that stuff. I would think it would hurt terribly, but I guess the desire to know if they can function without assistance over rides that. I'll be glad when the cath is out and I don't have to worry about any damage being done.
