    Did your GP tell you what infection you had? Did it get treated and did your husband get treated as well?

    This could be hindering his recovery.

    If you haven't, you both need blood tests to work out what is happening. He may have picked up an infection in hospital. I think all the other symptoms except urine burning and passing on a vaginal infection are fairly common, but I haven't had surgery.
  • We are not medical professionals and cannot offer any help that would benefit you or your husband.

    You don't state whether or not you have seen a doctor about these issues, and it is important that you discuss these symptoms with your doctor, and with your husband's surgeon.

    Best wishes.
