    prostate surgery & penis size

    I had prostate removal surgery around seven years ago and haven't been able to have sex since. My penis was fairly good in size before my surgery but since then my penis has gotten extreamly small in size. What would cause it to loos so much in size & is there anything I can take or do in order to regain the size again. besides the size being embarrassing it is also uncomfortable at times.

    I have no clue as to why. Only, that has also affected me the same way, to the point I have to sit to pee.

    I did not have my prostate removed, but I had also noted a decrease in size. Sometimes it even looks like I am uncut when I am not. I was not very endowed before the treatment, but it does seem to have gotten smaller. do you have a penis pump? If not, you should get your urologist to prescribe one and used on a daily basis. this will exercise your penis and also may help it to regain its previous size. Good luck.
