I had LVR performed on 1/11/10, cleared for intercourse 1 week ago - still loose, sex still feels the same. What could be wrong, what do I do now?

Doc stated that I was tightened to diameter of 2 cm, but my partner states that he cannot tell the difference. In addition, the first time we were intimate, there really wasn't any pain or "struggle", it was fairly easy, which concerned me. My partner and I have only had sex 3 times, and are reluctant to try again because we are so disappointed. Is there any correcton? What should I do next? I have lost confidenc, and now, I am afraid of a revision because it may fail again. Please help!!!
