What Causes Pain And Semi-erection Of Penis After Penile Implant?

My husband had a 3 pc. penile implant on Monday of this week. He came home on Tuesday. He has had severe pain ever since the operation, so bad he can not get out of a chair without help. He was told to go to the emergency room Thursday and is still in the hospital receiving strong pain meds. Dr. says the amount of pain he has is above normal. He keeps getting semi-erection, the saline seems to be going into the penis by itself, as nothing is being done to make this happen. The Dr. has had to deflate the penis a few times. My husband has such pain when this happens that he can not stand it. Is this normal?

Hello
Thanks for query .
Severe pain in penis after penile implant surgery is mostly due to either bleeding or infection .

Please consult operating surgeon for clinical assessment .You may need to do ultrasound scanning of the penis to find out the cause of such a severe pain.

In the meanwhile continue pain killers.
