It’s been just over three weeks, and things continue to improve. The sutures are now mostly gone, and so is the weeping from the incisions. There’s still some swelling in the perinium right where they were working, but it’s going down, and my scrotum is nearly normal aside from an aching feeling that seems very common with surgeries to this area.
Walking is still somewhat uncomfortable. It’s partly due to the swelling and incisions, and partly because of pre-existing problems with my legs from a surgery in March. I’m taking short walks a few times a day though.
Urinating is still fine. My bladder seems to completely empty every time, and the capacity has already returned to normal. Most nights I sleep without ever needing to get up.
