Many thanks

The pain in the tip of penis and urethra can be due to multiple factors as following;

1) Due to catheter staying for many days.

2) Due to persisting mild urinary tract infection due to catheter and surgical procedure.

3) Due to raw bed of prostate due to surgery which has a same nerve supply so there is referred pain to penis and urethra.

Hemorrhoids do can aggravate as there is laser affecting the wall of rectum and anal canal.

Warm sitz bath will help overall. Vitamin C and probiotics too are beneficial.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

How long do you think this will persist?

You are very welcome.

This may persist for almost 10-14 days. But it starts decreasing in intensity slowly after 4-5 days.
