Make the swelling go away?! Advice?

Postby SammyVegas » Sun Feb 11, 2024 6:51 pm

Hello Gents!

So I’m 7 weeks out and got cleared for sex. It was awesome and my wife flew off me like a bottle rocket I was so pent up. Pain was minimal with some burning due to the stretching. I’ve got most of my girth back and length is improving. I’m very happy except…

My balls are still swollen. Dr. Clavell is awesome and said it would take some time but I feel like I’m an outlier as most seem to have their boys back to normal at this point- mine are twice (sometimes 3) the size. When I wake up in the am they are smaller but as the day goes on they get big and very uncomfortable- plus it makes by junk look smaller which just sucks.

Anyone have any advice or tips? Any thing you took to help the swelling go away? I had some hematomas in the boys that went away, but still have some mass in the center which is near the incision-
Should I massage it?

Also, with my balks being so big it’s very hard to hide my junk, even deflated and I’ve gotten some awkward looks.

I appreciate the help!

Looking forward to cycling and gaining it back!

Keep icing. As soon as you start swelling, ice em. I went thru the same thing for about 9 weeks

Ice and elevation (laying down vs sitting) are your best friends right now. If you have a large scrotum (hanging testicles) a jock strap should be helpful. You're also on the cusp of being able to use some heat (warm - not hot bath) but recommend you contact Clavell or staff for more specific guidance on using heat.

The PA who did a big chunk of my follow up care (he basically taught me not to be afraid of the implant, it wasn’t gonna be any big deal to inflate/deflate) told me there can be some remnant swelling for 2-3 months.

Granted, I was infrapubic not penoscrotal. What that really means is I had very little swelling in my nutsack, but a whole lot right above my dick. It probably was a couple of months before I felt my pubic bone again, right above my dick and buried beneath a bunch of rather angry tissue.

Ice. Ibuprofen. Time. That’s the way to handle swelling.

I have the same cylinders, same size, same brand, and the same issues: Angry, 300 ml balls. Shooting pain in a penis that isn't the size I remember pre-op, but still wants to stand guard on the lookout for the next Viking raid.

If you look on Amazon you'll find Tonus Elast Suspensory Scrotal Support (XXX-Large). I bought 5 of them. Good scrotal support and it leaves your penis free to do whatever it's going to do whether you like it or not. The problem is, there is no protection for the glans and I end up getting chafed raw.

So I have ordered Separatec Cotton Dual Pouch Men's Underwear Comfortable Soft Everyday Boxer Briefs 7 Pack(M, Assorted Colors). It has a pouch for the penile shaft and if I can hang on until tomorrow, it appears to offer some protection.

As for the swelling: When I get up at 3 AM to pee, I end up standing in the shower under cold water as long as I can bear it. I turn on hot water and continue under the cold until the hot water arrives. Then I figure: "If I'm going to lose another 4 hours of sleep, I might as well soap down." I apply surgical soap from my butt all the way forward to the [scrotal] incision. In this manner I sanitize the entire region to ward off infection. I dry off; balls are almost normal size, and I go back to bed.

How long will the pain last? How long will the swelling last? I'm at least an inch shorter than what I thought to be pre-op, and the girth is down substantially. But it has only been 16 days; I'm 65 years old, and it's time to accept my lot under the sun.

Yes: I have begun cycling because I'm tough. No: It's not fun.

Very common to be an inch short at your point in the process. I was an inch short but it gradually came back over 10-11 months so slowly it was very difficult to even notice and then you begin to notice as it reaches it OEM! Time will heal if it’s sized correctly, and most are.
