2 years ago, I had laser vaporization for BPH. The first thing I discovered was that I had developed retrograde ejaculation -no big deal. I am way past the age where I want children. Then I noticed that the sensitivity in my penis was declining. I am now at the point where I cannot have an orgasm by intercourse or masturbation. Not only am I sexually frustrated, I am not longer a "husband" just a room mate. Can anything be done for this. Had I known about these side effects, I would NEVER HAVE AGREEDED to vaporization procedure! Poor urine flow is an inconvenience, THIS IS PERSONALLY SHATTERING!View Thread
Thak you for your response! Retrograde ejaculation is a problem for me. Much of the pleasure associated with sex comes from a productive orgasm. The sensation of semen being ejected through the penis is most pleasureable.
But, not bing able to have an orgasm, no matter what I try, is totally emasculating!
There are times when I seriously think about calling it a day and get out the trusty old revolver and end it all. When your quality of life becomes greatly diminshed, what is the point of living.
When we are young, life gives us many opportunities -education, choice of a career, choice of a lifetime partner, choice of children, etc., but at a certain point, life starts taking thinks from us, friends, our parents, eyesight needs glasses, our ears need helpers, peer pressure brings on retirement, and we become dependent on the family care system or nursing homes.
For me, I want none of that. If I cannot be active and do the things I enjoy most, what is the point in pressing on?View Thread
I agree. Retrograde ejaculation sucks. Once of the great pleasures a man has is the feeling associated with the expulsion of semen from our penis. With retrograde ejaculation, you reach a point, think you are experiencing orgasm, but are really not sure and the feeling of semen being forced out of you penis is totally missing. It is sort of an Oh, well, I guess that was good.View Thread
When I talked to him about my "problem" he had nothing to offer that the fact that it could be related to the vaser vaporization. COULD BE? I was OK before the procedure and after it, I have these 2 issues and he tells me "COULD BE"?
So right now, I am trying to book an appointment with a specialist at Johns Hopkins who is supposed to be the leading physician for the treatment of problems like mine. So I have some hope. If I strike out there, then I am out of options and have no hope of every functioning, even partially, like a MAN. But, at least I am still on the right side of the sod!View Thread
