I had a long reconstruction too and am experiencing some frustrations concerning the sexual side effects. Erections came back, although it took time. Morning erections are just a pleasant memory now. A 4 month follow up with scope showed everything was healing nicely and it sounds like it was a success.
The lack of ejaculation power is noticeable and nothing comes out until I sit on a hard surface. Peeing is the same thing after voiding. It is kinda embarrassing and has made clothes washing more essential. My surgeon suggested pushing the skin literally below the testicles (near the incision point in my case). It works some of the time.
Personally, I’m interested if anyone else is experiencing these issues. If so did they go away with time or was intervention with exercise/ retraining as mentioned above? I would also be curious if people are experiencing any discomfort at the incision site rather then repair? I have noticed some days I can feel the site.
