UPDATE: Catheter is out!!! The surgeon reviewed the RUG x-ray and said that she couldn’t even find the repair site – things had healed that well. Really pleased with that.
Said 1 more week with no sex and then take it slow from there. I still have some of that swelling i mentioned previously (hard ridge-like swelling parallel to the incision) but it’s about 70% resolved and the Dr. examined again and told me she wasn’t worried.
Catheter is out and now i’m retraining my bladder – it’s not a fun feeling after having your bladder empty for 3 weeks, to have it filled up again, but i’m trying to hold it as long as i can to help things stretch out.
Problem list: Swelling near incision, and numbness on underside of penis. I hope in a few months when i give my next update that i’m all better and feeling normal!
Stay positive guys, John B.
