Hey folks. Hope everyone is having a happy holiday season!
Not too much has changed since last update. Still some random pains/itching. I have noticed a very bad smell coming from down there. Best as I can tell, this is related to the disolving of the stitches.
I still have a hard mass down there as well. So long as it’s not causing problems with urination, I’m not going to go out of my way to talk to the doc about it.
I have to admit i didn’t quite make it to week 4 before masturbating. It was sorta painful and tight (as expected). There wasn’t any blood in it (although previously there had been traces of blood in the pre-cum). One disturbing event was that there was no force behind the ejaculation. It just dripped out the tip (much twitching of the penis however and decent sensation). From what I’ve read, ejaculation consists of the empying of semen into a cavern, then the muscles taking over and push it out. My guess is since I’m still healing (even have a large mass down there), then this likely is the cause for no pressure behind my ejaculation. I’m hopeful that, given gime, i will regain that.
I’m still numb down there, which is irritating but not unexpected. The numbness is restricted to the locations of incisions, so duh it’s going to be numb. Still concerned that I’ll re-build the stricture, but not much I can do about that.
Guess that’s it for my update. Hope everyone is doing well! Enjoy the holiday!
