When does ache stop ?

Postby craig45nj » Sat Jun 15, 2019 11:19 am

This is for those that healed quickly

I had procedure on a Tuesday - not much swelling and was pumping by Friday

Went to work Monday and taking nothing but Tylenol 3

Feel good except for the aches in shaft when moved

Anyone know when that goes away given how fast I am healing in general ?

For me, all aches & occasional burning sensation had gone by 10 weeks after implant but I may not qualify as a quick healer!

About three weeks after surgery, not much discomfort, really didn't have much until first activation about a month after surgery.
Hurt like hell when activated at first, then gradually got better. About a month after activation, only had discomfort when pumped to the max, but only after leaving it inflated for 30+ minutes. I am sure it is different for everybody.

I was pumped 80 to90 % during entire healing time. 4 weeks. Hurt like hell. Dr said I needed this healing procedure. I had a peyronies bend. Now over a year later if I pump it hard, (max). It starts to have an ache almost immediately. I may be growing still. I don't measure too often. Wish I knew when ache stops. I just don't pump to hard for sex.

I was activated at one week and started cycling that day. My dick still ached all the time, but it was significantly worse when I was pumped up. I only took ibuprofen for the pain after I left the hospital, nothing more seemed needed. The background achiness faded at about 3 weeks and then it only hurt when inflated. I was cleared for sex at 3 weeks, but it was still too sore under pressure to be comfortable. At 4-5 weeks there was no achiness left unless inflated to maximum for more than 15-20 minutes or more. At that point, I rather welcomed the pain since it probably indicated that I was stretching the tissues and growing some.

Hang in there, it gets a lot better very soon. Given how early you are cycling, I'd guess you are healing faster than most.

Interesting...I didn't cycle/ activate until 5 1/2 week point. At that appointment with my surgeon's PA (15 minutes total), I had no pain at all. Never since either. I always fully pump (about 25 to 30 pumps to reach max inflation). Only 'pain' that remains at the 7 month post-op point is that my scrotoplasty incision, that removed my 'turkey neck' skin and permitted wide open access to implant the Titan 22cm cylinders and RTEs, is still tender on the outside and the pump and tubes inside healed themselves to it. So much fun!?@#& Never took meds for any pain except to try one the day after I came home from the procedure. Absolutely no effect whatever!

Thank god that I work from home and that I can wear my fuzzy slippers all day while working. LOL For me I had discomfort but no real pain. I did have the burning sensation that many spoke of but that stopped at week three for me.
