Dr Carlos Marois private urologist recommends treating the affected area for the first 48 hours with ice, gel or a bag of peas at 15-minute intervals. This reduces postoperative edema and discomfort in the following days.
We also recommend taking Tylenol regularly, every 4 hours, during the first day. Avoid Advil brand medications or other anti-inflammatory drugs that may increase the risk of bleeding.
A shower is allowed after 24 hours.
Do not exert any physical, sexual or athletic effort for 48 hours. Thereafter, you will be able to resume your usual physical and sexual activities.
