First and most important- I'm glad you'll be ok..  Nags is right, going in and getting on that drip quick and having a doctor supervision saved your bacon. 
Did you tell them everything?

Didn't doc C put you on a 10 day antibiotic to prevent something like this?? 

This is a very important lesson for everyone.  Abscess can be very very bad.  Looks like Astro lucked out, Indiano's was the worst if they packed it full of gauze. 
Operations are dangerous, infections are extremely dangerous-- and look at how clean Doc C's office is.  It's always a roll of the dice. 

Newbies pay attention.  It's russian roulette. Every time. 

Glad you're ok and healing man!!

Let's hope I caught in time. I honestly didn't think to much about the hard spot as it happened about 4 weeks after my first round. And it fairly common to feel harder than normal tissue post op. I wonder if me wearing flannel boxers under my dress pants all week contributed . I was taking the antibiotics Dr C prescribed . And yes I told the ER doctor everything. He asked how much I paid, and where it was done. I can only guess I missed a hygiene check while inspecting or massaging. Still not sure what the true cause was.

So I'm on a timed IV drip for the next 3 days. Ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow, to see if further draining required. Local pain in the area has gone down, as has the swelling. Still taking all my sups, as well as cialis and remaining flowmax. I am still red in the area, and my donut reappeared. Donut most likely from the infection, and aggressive squeezing the dr did this morning to expell the pus. Have noticed the pus is less yellow, and almost clear.. here's hoping it's a positive sign. I have contacted Ian, and expect to speak to Dr C on Monday. The Dr at the ER also recommended I speak to Dr C, as he is more knowledgeable regarding the procedure and complications.

Would like to thank the forum for your support through this ordeal.

It does go to show even with regimented aftercare complications can happen. After all it is invasive cosmetic surgery! All should keep this in mind when considering phalloplasty. Even though my first round went off without a problem, every session is different, including how your body reacts each time. I am going to try to take a picture of the ultrasound tomorrow to show members what their junk looks like with PMMA enlargement. I can't say I've seen this here, and perhaps members might be interested.

IV drip is a way to inject antibiotics directly into the blood stream. Primarily used to help stop more severe infections. This is liquid antibiotic

Oh I got this at the hospital but I was allergic to it. I was wondering if we got the same antibiotics.

Lol.. I live the in Canada, home of free health care. The antibiotics are required every 8 hrs, so a nurse showed up at my Condo, and set up a timed IV pack. All for free, except for the parking this morning at the ER.

So lucky. I'm in NYC where there's shitty docters who give bad service and opinions. What's funny is a few months ago I went to the urologist and asked about the "lumps" he said they were scar tissue and a raised area I had, he said it was an edema and will go away naturally but yet it hasn't, and the area the pus is coming from is near the edema.

This would set us Americans back more than the procedure cost.  Good luck with your recovery.

To be honest, whilst I can imagine many will see this as a reason to celebrate socialized medicine and praise Canada, if you think about it objectively, it's actually a strong argument why socialized medicine is flawed. In reality it's fucking outrageous that tax payers money goes towards this kind of thing. 

Btw I'm not blaming you @lydon47, I'm a Brit and we have free health care here also. If the service is there, use it. But it's unbelievable how powerful the left have become politically. I've always seen myself as being left of center, but in recent years my opinion is really changing. I'm all for people having free access to health care, but when it gets to the point where guys are getting home visits from nurses to help with the penis enlargement issues, it's gone too far in my opinion.

I'm perfectly happy to pay NI (heath tax in the UK) for a health service, even if I don't ever use it, if, for example, it means kids with cancer etc can get free treatment. But in the UK it got to the point where girls were getting free boob jobs to help with their self esteem and I am not happy to pay for that.

Hoddie, like you I am burdened with some of the highest taxes in the world, in fact British taxes are considerably more than Canada. Although the world praises our universal health care it certainly has its flaws. We have a situation here where refuges are instantly given free health care, without having to have paid into the system, a complete atrocity, fortified by a out of control liberal system. Our current gov't spends, and wastes more money on foreign policy and headline issues than on our veterans, and indigenous people. This is a true waste of taxes. They are creating a legacy of insurmountable debt for future generations. The world sees our PM as some kind of poster boy, that all seem to admire. Yet at home, Canadians are frustrated, and embarrassed with his lack of domestic policy, and ridiculous "spend our way out of debt" montra.

In truth I elected to have the surgery, and hold myself responsible for the outcome, good or bad. I would have paid for the current treatment out of pocket if I had too, but the fact that I went into a urgent care facility qualified me for several free medical services.

So a day and half on the IV drip, swelling is way down, no pain. Still have small amounts of pus from entry point. But it seem to be less as time goes by. No fever.Ultrasound tmrw. Entire shaft is far less red, more a darkish pink now. After 2 rounds I'm not even sure what colour my dick is supposed to be anymore. IV comes out wed, and I'm hoping to resume stretcher shortly after that. It wouldn't do me much good right now as I'm sporting a pretty good donut behind my glans. Started the anti-inflammatory drugs again, to hopefully reduce the donut by the time the antibiotics are finished. Had to drop the IV news on my boss as I wear a suit usually, and that won't work this week. Happy to wear a golf shirt anyways as it supposed to be 30C all week. I told them last week when I was in TJ that I was having dental surgery, so I'm using that as my excuse..(got a bad infection). It's going to be a long week folks!!!
