What Can I Expect after Surgery for Peyronie’s Disease?

A light pressure dressing is often left on the penis for 24 to 48 hours after surgery to stop bleeding and hold the repair in place. During surgery, a tube (catheter) will have been placed through the end of the penis into the bladder, and this may still be in place when you wake up. The tube is often removed in the recovery room.

Most patients leave the hospital the same day after surgery or the next morning. You may be given antibiotics to take for a few days to lower the risk of infection and help keep swelling down, as well as pain meds. You shouldn't have sex for at least 6 weeks after surgery, or longer in cases of complex repairs.
