Hi... ok... here it goes.... When I was 11yrs old, I had a bike accident. From 21yrs old on, I have had multiple procedures to deal with my urethra stricture. 5 yrs ago, I had surgery. From that point on, I have noticed that my perineum tends to get swelling when I get an erection. The swelling begins before the erection begins and lasts longer than the erection does. It does not usually hurt. My last procedure was in 11/13. It was a dilation. This Morning (6:30am), when I ejaculated it was v. painful... after I could not urinate, when I tried it was v. painful (tried 2xs 8am, 10am). The pain lasted a while (usually my painful urination stops when the urination stops, for some reason the pain today lasted between 30mins for the first urination and an hour 30minutes plus for the second). At 10:30am, I took a cab to the emergency room... during the ride, I noted that my perineum was still swollen and I had to hip sit and I also had to walk bow legged into the hospital. (the head of my penis was also hurting). At 12noon, I was able to urinate a little (dribble stream with pain). At 1:30pm, I again urinated but the flow was less, pain was same. I believe that perineum was still swollen but it was not on my radar. I told I would have to get a Suprapubic catheter and had decided to have the procedure the next morning. While I was waiting to get admitted, at 3pm, I urinated and my flow normal (my normal) and with pain (still my normal). I also noticed that the swelling in my perineum was also gone. I decided against the procedure. I have urinated once since being home. It was again my normal flow. Am I crazy to connect the two and any ideas on why it is swelling. I spoke with one of the urologists and he didn t seem to think they were connected. In truth, I have never brought the topic of the swelling up with any of the urologists I have worked with over the last few years because it never occurred to me. We are now talking about a urethra re-construction but if this perineum thing is contributing to my urethra problems and could be fixed with a less intrusive procedure... (and buy me some time)... that would be great... again thanks...
