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
Hey man, thanks for the post. And you're right, stress slows healing. My basic advice for you is. If it doesn't get better in X amount of time, get the bloody thing cut out, problem solved. If you have a visible inflamed lymph channel, and that is the problem, then that's not a real big deal from where I'm sitting. There has been talk here that taking out a lymph channel may have negative consequences. Well, obviously if the channel is inflamed and it isn't moving waste in the first place, taking it out isn't going to make things any worse than they are now. And it gets rid of the inflammation. Problem solved. My problems are more complicated. I have the SL, and a hard symptomatic lymph channel that's hard to see, but also fascia, or whatever just under the skin that is inflamed, slightly swollen that just won't heal, and I'm talking an area about a few millimeters wide. It's insane. A situation that is very hard to see, and I just don't know how to go about getting a doctor to listen as I've never read of such a situation before.
I have not jerked off or had an orgasm (that didn't hurt) in almost 16 months. Go that long and see how you feel about things. And this ain't my first rodeo with dick pain. I have had this injury for almost a decade now(not this bad though), for the simple fact I had chronic pelvic pain syndrome and I already had dick pain, erection pain, ejaculation pain/pain after ejaculation as well as a whole plethora of other pain/other symptoms from that. So I didn't know I was injured, even though I went to multiple clueless sh1T for brains urologists just to make sure, that didn't help me. And I've basically been ill for half my life with just a myriad of health problems, and I'm real sick of this sh!t. I have my other problems under control now, other than my dick is totally fvcked.
Though I guess sclerosing lymphangitis and other dick injuries are a better thing to have than lymphatic filariasis. That is a consolation.View Thread
Counterso, maybe you missed it and were referring to the pearly penile papules, but in 10tonnes picture it looks like he has a lymph channel inflammation (or something) right on the glans to the right of the frenulum......that does look strange.View Thread
Don't touch your dick at all man, please, for the love of god. It sounds A LOT like what I have. Almost exactly. Sure throw up some pics somewhere. I'd be interested to see. I'm sure I have more pain/tenderness than anyone, but you can't even see the goddamn fvckin SH!T, or I would have been putting up pics, the pulsing tender chord can be seen on video on my camera phone, thats about it. just the slightest goddamn swelling can DESTROY YOUR LIFE. I have for a long time pulled the skin back so I could more easily see the swollen tender spot and gauge it's healing, but have recently realized even that flares up the situation. .......................I grow weary of this. Truly.
....................Your problem doesn't sound like peyronies, and if it is, you have to be on that sh!t quick. ultrasound quick, find a doctor that will prescribe pentoxyfilline quick. Tom Lue being the best bet. Most of these Uro's are sh!t at everything. So go to a good one.View Thread
