Everyone is different, Seko.
I had an end-to-end, not sure of the total distance. They removed at least 0.7cm of crushed tissue (I crushed my urethra in a straddle injury). But, the surgeon said it was a difficult surgery so it sounds like the actual end-to-end distance was longer (I was too out of it, post-surgery, to think to ask).
2cm sounds like a lot, though.
I’m 10 weeks post-surgery and am having issues with getting an erection. I get about half an erection but the glans and end of my shaft aren’t filling with blood. I can masturbate but not have sex, as of yet. It’s been very slowly getting better as time has gone on.
I don’t have forceful ejaculations anymore, but I do not have an issue with it making its way out. I expel all semen, it just doesn’t come out with any real force.
Urination is mostly ok. I dribble a bit but haven’t had to squeeze anything out and don’t have an issue with it coming out when I sit down. I can get most of the urine out, but if I don’t take the time to make sure I’m flexing my pelvic floor and shaking, I can get some dribble right after I zip up my pants. I’ve also taken to using a bit of toilet paper to wipe the tip when I go in the middle of the night, just to be sure.
