Reservoir Pain

Postby TheProfessor » Sat Mar 30, 2019 2:20 pm

Hi everybody.

I’m 24 days post-op and recovering well. I’ve noticed that I’m having some lingering, internal pain where the reservoir sits. Is this to be expected? It’s not crippling pain, but kind of a nuisance.

Thanks!

I've heard of guys having pain or discomfort there.
My reservoir feels non-existent, but For awhile I had pain where they put it all through the wall.

I thought I had reservoir pain about4 weeks post op. It was near the left groin area. Just having the implant, my focus was on the reservoir. Turned out to be an ilengual hernia on the left side. Common after being blown up with gas to do a radical prostatectomy which I had the previous year. Yea,, they didn't mention that or the hemorrhoids as a side effect of RP. They didn't mention this much leakage or total ED either.

Yup, maybe another week or two. When the pain starts to go, it goes pretty quick. Do you still have ANY swelling? Where there is swelling, there is usually some discomfort. Get rid of the swelling and the pain will go too. :)
