Yes, Penuma surgery can interfere with urinary function.
The Penuma implant is a silicone sleeve that is placed around the penis. The implant can cause narrowing of the urethra, which can make it difficult to urinate. This is a known risk of Penuma surgery, and it is important to discuss this with your doctor before you decide to have the procedure.
In some cases, Penuma surgery can also cause urinary incontinence. This is when you leak urine unintentionally. Urinary incontinence is a less common risk of Penuma surgery, but it is still important to be aware of it.
If you are considering Penuma surgery, it is important to talk to your doctor about the risks of urinary problems. Your doctor can help you decide if Penuma surgery is right for you.
Here are some additional risks of Penuma surgery:
- Seroma (buildup of fluid)
- Erectile dysfunction
- Decreased sensation in the penis
- Permanent disfigurement
Penuma surgery is primarily focused on increasing penile girth and is not intended to directly affect urinary function. The implant used in Penuma surgery is placed under the skin of the penis and is not designed to interfere with the urethra or other structures involved in urinary function.
However, as with any surgical procedure, there is always a potential for unintended complications. It’s important to discuss any concerns you might have about potential effects on urinary function with your surgeon during your consultation. They can provide you with accurate information about the surgical technique, potential risks, and how the implant placement is designed to avoid interference with urinary function.
If you experience any changes in urinary function or other unexpected symptoms after Penuma surgery, it’s important to contact your surgeon promptly to address your concerns and ensure appropriate evaluation and management.
