I had my catheter taken out 6 days ago and sometimes have slight pain in my penis. I don't need pain pills for it , it's just alittle uncomfortable
Is this common due to the catheter?

I think most people are so relieved to have the catheter gone that they only experience joy....

I think some discomfort can be in order. However, mention it to your physician when you see him/her and take your temperature daily.

Hope you feel better soon!

Hi MGL -- I had all kinds of sensations in my penis (still do at times) after the removaal of the cath.  Sometimes I felt like someone was giving me electrical jolts from my backside to the tip of my you-know-what.  Must have something to do with the nerves.  But tell your doc. anyway.  The surgery has all kinds of effects -- different for different guys.  Best of luck with your continued recovery.
