Pain after radical prosectomy

Posted 22 Oct 2019 at 19:19

Hi to the community, this is my first post. I am 4 weeks post RP and have issues with pain in the penis tip when urinating and pain in the perineum area , can anyone tell me if this is normal? I am resting a lot but take short walks through the day, it's painful sitting on a chair! So the sofa is my daily haunt if I do too much (as I did last Friday) the pain is worse. I know it's early days a bit of feedback of your experiences would be helpful.

many thanks  in anticipation Andy

Sounds normal. Hope your recovery continues to go well.

Not different from what I experienced, don't panic. If you dont have fever, rigor , chills dont worry.

There are certain types of cushions that will help your perineal pain.
