You may not have peyronie's, but there are a number of people like us over there that have just random dick problems that don't have a proper "name". It would be good for several reasons. One is there are many men there that are struggling with problems like ours, which is truly tough to deal with, and good to know your not alone, and to be honest, my situation has been excruciating, but I wouldn't trade it for a bad case of peyronie's, no way. You will find some names of doctor's you may want to go see. I would sign up and write your story in the "introduce yourself" subforum, and see what people say. many smart people there.
Counterso says to go see a urologist instead of a GP when you have dick problems, no argument there. But the average urologist is just as useless as a GP when it comes to stuff like this. And it makes me sick. A great example other than my personal experience, is what you hear on that forum. For peyronie's an average urologist will say "there is nothing to do but wait and see, maybe take some vitamin e"........and that is the worst advice possible as vitamin e has no studies behind it, and there is medicine that does, and you want to use it as soon as possible, NOT WAIT AND SEE. Sorry bout the rant I just absolutely hate ignorant condescending doctors as much as anything in this world. Another possibility down the line, if all else fails is an implant, and there have been some young guys that have got them and they seemed really happy with the results. Some people resist an implant I think because of ego, but to be honest, I think in some ways an implant is better than the real thing. If it was my last option it would not bother me at all. So don't lose hope man.
Hi Gengar, That's rough man..... How is the pain compared to when you last posted 9 months ago? Are your erections "normal looking"?....as in no dents, curvature, "peyronies symptoms"? Have you been masturbating?
I know you are not familiar with MY situation, but I have had a probably equally nightmarish time with dick injury/pain, which started almost 2 years ago. and I'll just say that if I ever tried to jerk off/have sex, my dick would have been toast there and then. So I have abstained, as I have no choice. And utterly miraculously my symptoms/swelling/pain has continued to get better even to this day, albeit extremely slowly, and I am not delusional, it really does take this long for whatever screwy healing pathway to take place ( at least in my case). I also make sure to keep erections to an absolute minimum because they make the swelling worse, I wish there was a way to make nocturnal erections stop happening for a time, because they are seriously slowing my healing down.
If you could get that pain to go away, that would the most important part of the equation, and a great start. Everything else can be dealt with in one way or another. Stay strong and keep in touch man.View Thread
There is a very good chance it is Peyronie's disease. Go to the link I provided and read that entire writeup, it will explain the best way to go forward. And also that is the best forum on the web for this disease. It is important to get to a urologist immediately, but most urologists know very little about how to treat this effectively, most will tell you to just wait and see what happens, which is the last thing you want to do. You need to start treating it immediately, to minimize the effects. which means starting on the drug (pentoxifylline ) ASAP.
There is a VERY good chance this is a symptom of Chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS), mainly caused by anxiety. Causing trigger points (tightened muscles) in the pelvic area. Ejaculating tightens everything up down there, and causes symptoms for most. I'm not gonna write out the whole schpeel on this, but you can learn about it here:
lots of good info there, you can also join the forum there, and purchase the book "headache in the pelvis" by Dr david wise.....I can almost guarantee this is your problem, by what you have said. I have had this symptom and cured it.
stay on the flomax. Chances are you absolutely do not have an infection.View Thread
Of course I've seen a urologist, I was circumsized for this reason, about half my life ago, after I had to self diagnose it as a kid. THere was fusion at the part of the corona where the frenulum attaches to about an inch wide along the corona. And when the urologist circumsized me, he just cut the outter skin off and left the inner skin attached to where it was. Hard to explain. But he sure did a sh!T job I can tell you that. Scarred all up. I made a big deal about it and he said nothing to do. I went to maybe 3 or 4 others and didn't get any help. But that skin does not look healthy and it gets red if bothered or whatever. It gets inflamed. But I always just though it's because it's just damaged. I think the lesson is if you have bxo and especially fusion, go to a serious cosmetic surgeon. I'm in a worse situation already having been circumsized retard style.
Now this all bothers me big time. But I've had so many health problems and even just my OTHER dick problem symptoms puts this to the backburner. Though I will say that skin looks like squamous cell carcinoma waiting to happen IMO. Anyway, can you elaborate on your "skin fusion is very serious" comment. And also, do you think this could have any relation to my other problems, either coming or sticking around so long?View Thread
