Hey all, sorry for the delayed follow up. My apt got pushed back and rescheduled due to a flight delay.
It’s been roughly 5 months since surgery, and I am feeling the same I was in my previous post. Content with how things are now, I’d rate it all at a 7/10 (compared to a 3/10 pre surgery). Pain is a non factor, but flow / force is somewhat disappointing. I feel empty after going, but some days are worse than others (if I don’t drink enough fluids, I feel there are issues). Intercourse is better, I can ejaculate with force. At the end of the day, I no longer have bladder spasms and peeing is pain free.
Either way, the surgery wasn’t as big a deal as some make it out to be. The only experiences that I’d prefer to never have again, is getting my friend scoped, & having to do the initial pee test post surgery (one of the most uncomfortable things I have EVER felt).
To anyone who has this unfortunate disease, do yourself a favor and find someone who specializes in these reconstructive surgeries. It is a smart move, to at least attempt. You don’t want to wait, and destroy your bladder, kidneys, etc.
