I've had an uneventful recovery from surgery Sept. 27th, (back for my first psa next Thursday) but have noticed a change in the past few days and was wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar? A couple days ago, I felt like there was some change in my belly, a different 'feel' to things there. Not painful or anything, just 'different' feel to how things had been up to then. The best way to describe it was a return of the feeling I got a week or so past surgery when I rolled over onto by right side in bed, but not as large a sensation. That feeling was one of weight and shifting of organs moving around inside. Then last evening the shooting pains started. I'd best describe then as knitting pains, if I were talking about
a broken bone. They start at the public bone and like electricity, run up my penis and lingers on the head, feeling most like a good sized ant is pinching there. This lasts for 10 seconds or so, and has become more frequent, with more intense aching between sensations. I had something similar but weaker a few weeks ago in the belly behind the incision scar, but deep down, which seemed to be tied to the penis then.
I am thinking it is the nerves making their reconnections and growing. I have been fully ED since surgery, but taking 25mg Viagra nightly and attempting stimulation once a week, with no results on growth or orgasm. So, what is you guys experience with regrowth and return of function for erections?
