Re: Stiff penis after catheter removed
My guess is that you had some bleeding into the spongy layer that normally infuses with blood when erect. This had more to do with the injury than the catheter. I would call your Dr. to inquire, but I think as long as it is getting better and not worse, it will likely take several days for the blood to reabsorb. Warm compresses a few times a day may help (as long as it isn't getting worse, in which case ice would be best). If it is getting worse, you must call your Dr immediately and be seen, as that would indicate continuing bleeding. Avoid aspirin and ibuporfen, naproxen as those enhance bleeding. Tylenol is fine for pain. There may be some element of swelling present too which will resolve with time.
