So the urologist basically concluded you have peyronie's without actually diagnosing: you said he felt a "hardened area", offered you vitamin e, said you could have injections to break up the plaque, which would be xiaflex (a new product, but without insurance very expensive) or verapamil (crap) or surgery, though even if your congenital curvature were bad enough they would do it. But, the fvckin tard doesn't offer an ultrasound, which would be the instrument to diagnose said "hardening". Your average urologist doesn't know much more about diagnosing penis problems than a general practitioner, you need a professional who will get you on pentoxyfilline immediately. As, and I don't mean to scare you, the peyronie's can kick in 6 months down the road, as some report happening after an injury, and your best shot is being on pentox if you can get it(which you can, period) to give you the best chance of that not happening.
Counterso, The majority of guys on the peyronie's forum report having some sort of accident/injury. A lot of "girl on top" position injuries is very prevelant. Yes, whatever causes dupuytren's contracture leaves men predisposed to peyronie's, but many report having an injury that set it off where a normal man would have healed.View Thread
Yes you are exactly right, the CONDESCENDING doctor thinks you are obsessing over your penis. I know, I (and any other young person with a dick problem) was in the same situation when I was 19, guess what I am now, an almost 29 year old with a roasted destroyed dick. Yes, life will SHlT all over you. But you may be alright, you just have to keep going to doctors and don't let them off easy. It is truly astounding how low quality 98% of doctors are. Disgusting.
I have seen literature where sometimes slight fractures come with not very much symptoms, remember the pictures you see on google image for example are extreme cases, that's why they are there. Though it is true there isn't probably much doctors can do for you at this point, the best thing you can do is NOT TOUCH YOUR PENIS and let it heal for A GOOD WHILE. pain is not good. Again, I would go over to that other forum I told you about and tell them your story, and learn about pentoxyfilline, I would try to get some of that, you can learn where at taht other site.View Thread
You may have caused a slight fracture, if there is bruising. The twisting, angling of your erection could be Peyronie's disease kicking in from the damage to the tunica that was inflicted from the injury. If I were you, don't waste time with regular urologists. here is a list of urologists familiar with peyronie's:
I am obviously not saying YOU HAVE peyronie's, but time is of the essence with this particular problem, and you have to get some closure, a good inspection and ultrasound by an ADEQUATE doctor should get you that, and you should try as hard as possible to get a prescription for pentoxyfilline. hell, even just with that injury I would get on it.View Thread
Not really sure why I still am posting here but it's the only place anyone might enjoy my fun story, anonymously. I had went to my GP in JULY to get him to send me to another urologist, at this point in october I had yet to be called about an appointment, and I figured someone just screwed up somewhere but I didn't care because there is another really good urologist I have just found out about that is relatively closeby, so I just wanted to get a referral to him. And I also wanted to see if my GP would prescribe me some stuff that might help but he wouldn't.
Anyway, there was no screw-up, my appointment for the original urologist is scheduled for MARCH, 2015. 8 months wait time. When he mentioned that, I started laughing a bit like an insane person, which I am at this point I might add. And that urologist is just run of the mill, I saw him many years ago, nothing special, so I can only imagine how long it will take to see this better doctor.
A completely functioning healthcare system we have up here in the north. And if anyone hints at even semi-privatization, people go absolutely nuts.
I'm thinking maybe I should just take a medical tourism trip to Liberia. I figure since there are a lot of "Doctors without Borders" there now, I may be able to slash my wait time and get better service.View Thread
Trapstar, First, please make paragraphs, when you write something so long as a solid block of text it is hard to read. What does the doctor say about the vein? Does the pain come and go when flaccid or erect or anytime? and can you again get full erections like before? Did you ever take an extended break from masturbating/sex to see if that helps?
Does the urologist know about your current pain symptom, and if he does and isn't helping, go and see a different one. I'm not a doctor, and Counterso is probably on vacation or something....but since it is free, I would ask this question on this Peyronie's disease site, and see what they say:
If the doctor felt something, it could be the start of a very mild peyronie's plaque, that the ultrasound couldn't see,(if they were also looking for that in the first place), which could be causing you that pain. In which case, you could benefit from some prescribed pentoxyfilline. Even if it weren't peyronies, that drug may help with the pain, if it is inflammatory.
I'm just pondering here, obviously what you have to do is see another doctor.View Thread
No one can diagnose you here, you have to go to a urologist for that. You have to go see a professional. And if one doesn't help you go see others. And don't let them be dismissive, demand help. If you have bruising and swelling ,that is something that a doctor can see, and you should show it to him before it possible goes away, and there is nothing to see. Another possibility is " penile mondor's disease". You could also take a picture of it.
And in the meantime, do not touch your penis or masturbate/have sex. I know it sucks, but you do not want it to get any worse. And it will if you keep touching it. Anytime you feel like you can't stand not masturbating anymore, read some of MY posts, and you probably will lose the need to masturbate. Through the miracle of FEAR.View Thread
Hi Blarghhh, How old are you? I also notice erections and the "pressure" of orgasms make my problems worse, the latter makes things worse than anything. And they don't feel good. You HAVE TO clean under your foreskin or you could get an infection like lichen sclerosus (google image that), you do not want that you really have no choice.
Mentally I doubt I could be much worse. I'm the most miserable person I know. I don't know how to come to terms with something like this being unresolved, quite possibly permanently. I would absolutely rather chop my dick off than deal with this pain/discomfort forever.
I hope the urologist helps you in some way. Good luck.View Thread
Counterso, whereabouts is your clinic located. I have a few different places I'm thinking of going. I absolutely need some serious dick surgery, there is something very wrong here. I wish I hadn't waited so long it just hurt so much and was so easily made worse by touching I just didn't want any doctors touching me. This is so fvcked. AND YOU CAN""T SEE NOTHING ..... I hate how it has seemingly progressively gotten better over time, or at least the swelling has gone down to almost nothing, to where you can't see anything (hardly could at the start either), and pressing on it doesn't hurt hardly in a totally flaccid state. but getting even a 10% erection is uncomfortable, and once there's any blood in there, touching the bad spot hurts. Moving around with an erection hurts. I just ejaculated and it hurt just as much as it ever has. So. I'm done. I gotta get time off work so I can go around to a bunch of doctors and beg them to take a knife to me. dick or jugular, I'd be happy with either.View Thread
