I am a 27 year old male. On Oct. 3 I had laser lithotripsy performed to blast a 9mm stone that was stuck in my lower right ureter for about one month. My urologist removed all of the fragments from my stone during the procedure. I had a stent placed which was removed on Oct. 5.
Urinating was painful (both burning and stinging) while my stent was in, and for a day after my stent removal. My urologist said the surgery was successful and everything appears to be returning to normal.
My question/concern is regarding getting an erection. It has only been 4 days since my procedure, but I noticed that getting an erection is quite painful. I was curious if this was normal and how long I should expect this to be a problem.
