when did your swelling go down?
« on: April 01, 2016, 12:15:51 PM »

It has been 9 days since the surgery and there is still significant swelling. Is this a reason to go to hospital? I had the nesbit procedure they shortened the dorsal side.

I would say no. Swelling is normal after surgery of this type. However, if the swelling shows no signs of gradually subsiding I would consult your urologist.

After my VED injury, it's been nearly three years and it's not gone. It has greatly diminished quote a bit though and I'm very thankful for that. Not sure about surgery ><

Good call, I regret not reading you asked if you should go to the hospital. Infection can definitely happen after surgery. Let us know how it goes and try not to feel alone, we are here for ya!

Had an abscess break out. I was just wondering about the loss off length after surgery. Pre surgery If I measured along the curve then its 25cm but straightened out its 22cm. Obviously Im not seriously concerned about the size. Just wondering If its around 3cm minus from 22 or 25

They should have given you strong antibiotics, anti inflammatories, and pain killers before you left the hospital. I automatically assumed that they would have done this. Did they not?

Ok I'm updating the situation a bit. So they made 2 revisions in the hospital because of the infection. Nothing serious I think. Now 3 months after the operation I still have a really tiny hole like 2mm in diameter in the foreskin that continues to the sulcus (dno?, the doctor wrote something like that in my patient log) of the penis,oh and yeah the hole is called a " fistel" I hope it's the same in english because I'm from Finland and can't help you guys if that word means nothing in english. The hole emits brown fluid. My erections are straight and normal now but the foreskin is really tight and I guess it won't retract properly because of the fistell. It's like a hole with with this red folded tissue that is around the area where the foreskin connects to the penis. So they have me booked a third revision with possible circumision in 2 months or so. The doctor also said I have lots of foreskin.

 So my question from you guys is that do you think after the possibly succesfull(?) revision will my erections be longer? I was 24cm curved before the nesbit operation (21cm straightened out as straight as I could) and now it's only 17cm. I mean yeah kinda first world problems because 17cm is well above average, but you can imagine the "Shock" of going from 24(or 21, I dno how you consider it) to "merely" 17cm. 7cm is a massive loss.

Sorry about the english I'm from Finland

Ok, I have my tape measure in hand.

Dude, 17 centimeters is still generous.

There comes a point where you have to get down on your knees and be grateful. You said you're straight now. You are more than a penis. And, your penis isn't a trophy.

Even if you ended up at 13 centimeters, I'd be cheering you on, and kicking you out the door.

I also lost 7/8 cm in length and it's a pretty shocking feeling. When you lost so much length you simply do not see your penis as you used to, and this can leads to some problems. I can understand. I mean 2/3 cm is okay, but 7/8 it's like cutting it off.

Jack1909 -- For frame of reference, a man that has a five inch dick and loses one inch due to some aspect of Peyronie's or its treatment, this man's anxiety and male psychology I can 100% appreciate.

You didn't say where you started in length, or where you finished, only what the difference was.

But EPOC is left with a full six inches.

I would have shared the same male pride if I had nine inches to strut about with, as did EPOC at the beginning. Totally. You bet. But pride is one thing.

Gratitude that one has six inches of functioning member remaining in the world of curved dicks is pretty darn spectacular based on the countless stories of men here on the Forum.

HI Epoc,

You don't say how much curve you had to start with, you should be the size of the shorter side of your penis.

What you can do is hold head of your penis and stretch it straight out in front of you for a couple of minutes 5 or 6 times a day.

Your penis has probably retracted a little bit from the surgery.

I would also look into VED to help get it back out of your body.

I'm guessing if you used a VED for about a month you get back about an inch which is hiding from you.

Sorry for not replying. My curve was about 50 degrees downwards. I will think about buying a VED though I'm not very optimistic about these sort of "torture devices"

Has anyone had hand or feet numbness or swelling after penile surgery? That would be quite helpful to know!

My swelling from the VED incident has went down slightly over the years to an acceptable level, but I still find it troubling and the resulting "watery" feeling I have in my hands and body. I'm starting to think it's all related to my blood sugar, despite a near flawless diet and healthy body composition.
