Penile tendon tightened by inguinal hernia repair

I had surgery for inguinal hernia about 4 months ago. Since then the tendon on that side of my penis is much more pronounced. it seems to be pulled tighter. This causes no that bothers me except during intercourse. Positions that exert pressure straight down from the pubic bone (e.g., woman on top and thrusting downward to increase her pleasure) pull this tendon to the point of pain.

I don't relish surgery to cut that tendon (I believe this is a form of "penis enlargement" surgery that itself causes sexual dysfunction). Will this tendon lengthen and stretch over time?

I'm in excellent health and 65 years old.

This should get better with time as the inflammation slowly resolves - but it can take many months to a year and a half to be at its normal baseline.Talk to your surgeon about a course of anti-inflammation medication that might help.
