Everything you have mentioned I have and still experience after almost 12 months since my graft which was 8 cms. I dribble after voiding unless I use both hands squeezing either side of the lower area of the scrotum, this also is the only way of expelling any sieman after ejeculation which never finds its own way out due to its path being too tight whilst I have an errection in place, I can move my penis up or down which helps it to flow with force so the power is there but not the path.
All the above aside I feel like I’m sitting on a swollen peranium sometimes but I think I cause that by squeezing too hard expelling urine!
I’m very pleased to be able to pee well after a year and not have to keep rushing into A&E to have a catheter rammed into me at what ever cost to me in order to urinate when I was unable to even pass a drop sometimes.
I understand people’s frustration but for all the above problems I’m very pleased that my surgeon was able to pull off such a complicated procedure.
I hope you all find a way to live with your various issues and enjoy what is a very short time on this planet.
All the best Sean
