Just over 9 weeks since RALP, and still getting pain.
The pain is not intense, probably only a 3 or 4 out of 10, but sometimes it gets me down. I am 99% continent and have reasonable erectile function. I know I should feel grateful for such a good result so far, but the presence of blood spots at begining and end of urination, or the general pain down below is testing my resolve.
I have been taking paracetemol since the surgery, but this only helps slightly.
I have been told to expect blood for up to 8 weeks, and that recovery could take up to 12 weeks (so take this to be pain could be around for that long).
