    Swollen Scrotum
    An_252318 posted:
    I had prostate surgery last week on June 5th and am now plagued by an enlarged scrotum. It is extremely uncomfortable. I believe that I previously read about a special cushion that makes sitting more comfortable. Does anyone know about this or where I can purchase one? Or does anyone have any other helpful suggestions? Thanks for your help.

    I have seen at least one other person mention this. But it is hard to tell how long it will before they see this and respond.

    You might want to try a hemorrhoid cushion. Those are basically a doughnut shape.

    But first call your doctors office and ask to speak to the his nurse. They have probably seen this and have more specific suggestion.
