Actually such swelling does take four to six weeks in routine to settle.
So this is a routine healing process that is going on.
This is not something to worry about and should settle in due course of time
To create compression using a condom is also a good thing to do. There is no harm in that and you can continue using that.
Are you following me?
the condom also dose not stay in place. i am looking for a product that will hold it's shape and not wad up
Actually there is no such product. You would have to repeatedly apply the compressing tapes and hope that they stick.
The swelling or fluid would go down in another week or two time
It can take up to six weeks in total for the swelling to subside and this is normal after penile implant surgery.
the swelling had already gone down, fluid came in after.
If the swelling has settled and the fluid is a clear fluid, i.e. not infectious, then this should dry up soon as the healing process is complete
This should be another week or two
So the most important thing is to give it more time
i cannot see the fluid as it floats around between the implant and subderma? .
Yes, its beneath the skin
Which should dry up in due course of time
If this fluid does not dry up in another week or two or keeps getting worse then you should contact your doctor who carried out the surgery fur further evaluation
