My first post on here! I hope it's in the right section...
I had the da vinci treatment 11 days ago, and catheter removed yesterday. For the last week, I have had extreme swelling in my scrotum and skin round my penis, which is mainly uncomfortable rather than painful. And the practicalities of supporting the extra weight/size whilst trying to use pads is a little challenging.
When my catheter was removed, a registrar checked out the swelling and told me is was lymph fluid following the removal of some lymph nodes. However, he gave me no information (or comfort) about how long this is likely to carry on for, or indeed what level of concern it is.
I imagine this has been covered numerous times on this forum, but I can't find it yet. Any advice, views, thoughts about living with the extreme swelling will be most very welcome.
