In a vigorous coupling a month ago, my partner met me at an awkward angle and I bent back at about the top one-fifth...about where the foreskin would have originated. I heard a sound that I can't determine was the pop of a fracture or of our bodies realigning, and I had some pain but not excruciating or long lasting. There was some lingering occasional discomfort akin to burning along the urethra in the area but it subsided within a couple days and a GP exam indicated no significant damage and a prescription to wait and see.
Since then I've achieved a few reasonable erections alone and with my partner, and on occasion they've been tentative. Most recently was this weekend and one was pretty good but the next two moderate...plus there was another close call in the same position as the original incident. Could be I have some "stagefright" and my mind is inhibiting me. But I also seem to have a very limited but potentially disconcerting loss of sensitivity where it should be highest--on the underside right below the tip...my favorite spot and where the brunt of the impact was felt.
I have an annual physical in a month and will ask then if this persists, but I'm concerned about doing whatever I can to aid recovery of sensation and erection integrity. Is there anything to do but wait and expect that any damaged nerves/nerve endings will slowly be repaired?
