Sore incision

One month after successful RP surgery, my incision wound is healing nicely but it's still really quite sore. Covering it with a cotton pad makes no difference, especially where the waistband covers it, even with sweatpants. Anyone else had this problem?

Sorry to learn of your discomfort. Did you have robotic or open surgery? Is the soreness on the surface or deep inside?

I had Robotic surgery a month ago. My skin incisions were sore for about 10 days, one continued to drain and took two weeks to heal. I can still feel some soreness deep inside if I overexert or strain. I have been advised to allow a good 6-8 weeks for the full healing of deep tissue.

On all these matters I found that the nurses in my urologist's office were very knowledgeable and helpful...and available.
