Painful to stand or walk post surgery
« on: May 14, 2019, 06:10:46 AM »

Hi guys.  The hospital advised me to have a gentle walk as often as I can following my incision and grafting surgery.  Everything was fine for a couple of days, but from day 3 things started to get really painful.

It’s now day 5 and I’m struggling to stand. 

Should this be cause for concern, or all just part of the healing process?

All part of the healing.  Do you have pain meds?

Probably because the anesthesia is wearing off

I know some surgeries they use a long acting anesthetic that lasts about 3 days. You are about the stage everyone asks why the hell did I do this to myself? !!!!!!!! but things should start improving fairly quick soon. Walking a little to prevent blood clots in your legs is advisable, but you need to stay reclined and iced as much as you can otherwise. It is easy to get weak from surgery and you still need to eat, drink and get as much sleep as the pain will allow you. Cheers man, healing helps.

Thanks guys.  I have codine, but the pain has eased a bit, so just the odd ibuprofen is needed.

Hopefully things will continue getting better.

My reply sounds stupid, but patience is a virtue, when it comes to surgeries.
Penis surgery is tough, it's your friend between your legs and it all hurts.
When you sit, when you walk, etc.
I found that I just had to make it through each day and night.
Sometimes I did too much and the poor guy was killing me in pain.
I would reach for a heavy duty pain pill on those occasions, but most the time, tylenol would work.
There will come a time, when you will think, wait, i have no pain today, it comes slow
I am thinking it was 4 weeks for no pain at all, then sex at 6 weeks, but each guy is different.
Take one day at a time.

Thanks for the reply.  It’s now been 11 days and the pain and swelling has eased a little.  Still hurts when standing and walking for too long, but a 10 minutes or so at a time is bearable

The main issue is the swollen ring around the base of my penis.  Hopefully that will ease soon
