eazyep521 posted:
I had the surgery with the mesh 2 months ago and now whenever i get an erection it i get pain like in the middle of the shaft and near the tip. I'm just wondering what i can or should do about it. If anyone else has had this happen to them could you please tell me what is causing the pain and will it go away on its own? I really need to know, thx.

Sheldon Marks, MD responded:
This can be from inflammation from the hernia that can generalize out to adjacent tissues. It should get better with time and anti-inflammation meds. You should go back and see the surgeon and also a urologist.

I had surgery 3 weeks ago with the mesh on my right side and now when I have an erection it is bent upward. I had swelling in my balls, and black and blue around where my penis comes out. All the brusing has gone away, but I have a swelling (ridge still under my scar. If anyone else has had this happen to them could you please tell me what is causing this? thanks,
