Mine is finally starting to heal. But, it has taken almost 3 months. So, listen to counterso when he talks about leaving it alone and being patient. Forget about sex until it has fully healed. It could be a week or 6 months. It's not worth doing any further damage to your penis. I had the same issue with waking to find the channel inflamed but, subsiding during the day. I would only seek out professional help if it is actually getting worse. It may look the same for weeks as mine did but finally, it should start to clear. It's just a frustrating injury because of the slow healing process. Good luck...View Thread
Thanks for taking the time to reply to my concern. I do have one other question, however. A number of years ago, my girlfriend was way too rough on my penis and I wound up with a lymph channel injury just under the head of my penis. It's approximately the size of a pea. It has been there close to 10 years so, I know it is "clotted" and will not resolve on it's own. It is not painful but, I am wondering if there is any way of having this clotted fluid removed. Thanks again for your time.View Thread
I have an inflamed penile lymph channel and wanted to ask you several questions. I have read all of your posts and you have used a time frame of anywhere from a few weeks healing time to as many as 6 months. Mine has been inflamed for almost 2 months. No better but, no worse. Will it heal slowly or will I simply wake one morning and it will be gone? Also, once it is gone, is it healed or do I risk it coming back by engaging in any sexual activity? In other words, is that area now weakened? It seems inflamed each morning when I get up but after an hour or two, it is not even noticeable. Why is this? And, is the channel itself inflamed or is it a build up of excess lymph fluid inside the channel that makes it protrude? Thank you!View Thread
