Approximately 5 weeks after RP, my husband developed what appeared to be an infection. His stream had declined(shortly after removing catheter)and it burned while urinating. He visited the local urologist who had initial treated him, and was given antibiotics and something for the burning sensation. Within a day or so, he noticed something in the tip of his penis while urinating. He proceeded to dig the object out with the tip of his finger. Not only did he pull out one object, he retrieved 2 more! Each is 1/8" long and is some sort of plastic "clip". He has since been passing pieces of sutures (we think), and would like to know if anyone has experienced this strange situation. He goes back to the urologist is 2 days, and then to the surgeon June 1 for his 6 week checkup.
