I had a radical prostectomy in April of 2008. Erections and Orgasms have been ok although recently in the last month i've had pain for up to 12 hours after orgasm. It feels as if i have to urinate but when i try either nothing or very little urine comes out.
Has anyone experienced anything like this? As i said It just started in the last month and prior to that it was fine. My PSA has been undetectable in all blood tests since my surgery and i have a blood test this month with a follow up with my Doctor in August.
Thanks guys. I just read an story that said when you orgasm your bladder closes. since the bladder neck is stitched to your uretha after surgery it sometimes spasms causing it to close hard on the uretha. After two years of this happening in the same spot after surgery it causes swelling to the uretha causing multiple trips to the bathroom. Don't know if this is true but i will check with the Dr. at my appointment next month. The story also said flomax may help this condition. Anyone ever hear of this?
EBRT can also cause pain after orgasm. Mine started in November 09, EBRT was Sept/Oct 07. Presently I can not hold back the event to extend & highten the pleasure. I now understand why some people want/need pain to intensify the orgasm. For me the pain lasts 5 to 10 minutes. It takes a days to work up the courage to do it again, the pain is intense.
